THE Bathurst Seymour Centre looked like a scene from Grease on Wednesday as it celebrated its 39th birthday.
Each year, the centre holds a big birthday bash and this time clients celebrated with a 1950s rock ‘n’ roll theme.
Ladies who decided to dress up selected full skirts, cardigans and polka dots, while the gents had their best suits on. Leather jackets were also popular.
CEO Terisa Ashworth said the party included entertainment from musician Peter Horan, blues rock ‘n’ roll dancers and the Arts Out West / Bathurst Seymour Centre Choir.
There was also a fashion parade of the best outfits that matched the theme.
“All we’ve done is eat and have fun all day,” Ms Ashworth said.
The Seymour Centre is an important facility in the Bathurst community, which helps people continue to engage with others while taking part in fun activities.
Ms Ashworth said student volunteers attended the party to help it run smoothly, and their participation allowed them to see the value of facilities like this in the community.
“It has opened their eyes as to the enjoyment people can have together,” she said.
The Seymour Centre will celebrate its 40th birthday next year and staff will soon start planning ways to celebrate the milestone.
