Brisbane’s living treasures toasted at high tea

28 July, 2015

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk and Lady Mayoress Anne Quirk will today host some of Brisbane’s living treasures at the annual 100+ Club High Tea.

The Lord Mayor said the annual High Tea was a well-loved event by the centenarians and their families.

“Today’s High Tea provides an opportunity for Queensland’s centenarians to catch up with friends, share their life stories with the younger generation and reminiscence about their life,” Cr Quirk said.

“The 100+ Club is the only known club of its kind in the world and aims to enhance the social lives of Queensland centenarians, increase friendships and promote healthy aging.

“Now in its 22nd year, the club is constantly growing and improving, with approximately 100 members across Queensland.

“Council is proud to support a club which promotes access and inclusion for the oldest members of our community.”

Eight centenarians are expected to attend from suburbs in and around Brisbane including West End, Mt Gravatt, Albion, Kenmore Hills and Moffat Beach.

Cr Quirk said the High Tea would also be attended by student representatives from the 2015 Lord Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council and Student Environmental Leadership Network to enjoy the valuable contributions that the centenarians make through their living history.

“As census data continues to show Australians are living longer, it’s important we continue to support seniors in their participation in our local communities,” Cr Quirk said.

“I look forward to hearing the members of the 100+ Club share their life stories and lessons with the younger generations.

“I am also looking forward to hearing the centenarians share their pearls of wisdom about what the secret to a long life is.”
