Connecting Generations is an intergenerational gathering at the Uniting Church Hall in Dalley Street, Mullumbimby on Sunday September 11, from 10.30am to 1pm.

‘People of all ages are welcome’, says co-organiser Ruth Winton brown. 

‘It is a wonderful opportunity for local families without aunties, uncles or grandparents to enjoy connecting with all members of our community in a fun and relaxed setting’.

‘The day will include a generational jam session with well known local musicians, John Hoffman, Stan Ceglinski and Julie from Music Jewel. 

‘It’s also an opportunity to make a ‘diddly bo’ instrument with materials  and percussion supplied. We will be making frog hotels, frog puppets, as well as games and a delicious free morning tea. Bringing your own instrument. Free neck and shoulder massages will also be available. 

‘There is also the opportunity for further support, linking elder and child, when parents need assistance in the home, such as time for reading or playing with a child when parents are busy. We all have current Working With Children Check certificates.

‘Connecting Generations was started by a group of community-minded elders interested in bringing people together of all generations to share in the joys of each generation, offering support and enriching each other’s lives’.

‘We decided to run series of intergenerational gatherings and inspiring lunches and have held a series of picnics for the last three years at the Bangalow Weir Parkland. After the devastating floods, we decided to bring some fun activities to Mullumbimby.

‘Harvard University studies conducted over five generations show that people who invest in the next generation are three times likely to be more happy and live longer’.
