Musical March

Why have I dubbed March musical? We transition to Autumn this month so leaves will soon turn and fall in the music of a fresh breeze. We also have several musical options for you this month, something we know many of you enjoy.

Please ring me as I have a query

If you miss out on our draw for attendance to the Seniors Gala Concert and the NSW Seniors Expo, please remember you can request HKCT transport to/from KRG’s “Everything for Seniors” Festival at the Turramurra Uniting Church on 13th March. You can chat with local providers offering services for older Australians—and with a chair!
I also have a few March reMinders for you. If you’ve had chicken­pox, you can get shingles. I remember being taken to play with an infected neighbour child, to get it, and get over it, while young. Do you? Oh, how times have changed! Anyway, if you’re 65+ or ATSI aged 50+, or an eligible immunocom­pro­mised adult, you get the shingles vaccine free. Please speak to your GP.
Another reason to visit your GP this month is for your flu vaccine. Covid 19 is still rampant and with flu season around the corner and the flu vaccine taking 3-4 weeks to give you coverage, get ahead of the crowd.
If ever disaster strikes, legal worries often follow. Having your documents stored digitally is a great way to get started preparing for an emergency, and help you navigate any potential legal issues. Get ePrepared is a free, online self-help tool, developed by Justice Connect and Telstra. It coaches you on how to store electronic copies of documents in case you need them urgently.
Here’s a safe link:

Music to everyone’s ears at HKCT is Mr Justin Lee who has joined us as Client Services Manager. You’ll be speaking with him soon enough and meet him at our next Client Meeting. Which enables me to make music in UK & Europe in March to visit family and friends that are family.
May the magic of music be with you too this month. As Hans Christian Andersen said, “Where words fail, music speaks.”
