THE Governor of Queensland joined more than 100 seniors for a special breakfast and tea yesterday morning.
Governor Quentin Bryce said she was pleased to meet the people of Rockhampton.
"I am absolutely delighted to be here,'' she said.
She said it was good people of all ages were interacting. "It's nice to see both young and old people taking care of seniors,'' she said.
"Old people love young people's company.''
The annual breakfast was attended by various prominent community members, including Mayor Margaret Strelow and Councillor Rose Swadling.
This is the fourth year the special breakfast has been put on for the seniors at Schotia Place. Event organiser Verna Halsey said it was a good opportunity for seniors to get out in the community and meet people.
"It is very significant to these people,'' she said. "Events like this are absolutely necessary.''
After the breakfast Mrs Bryce presented several TAFE students with certificates of appreciation for their community efforts.
