50th Anniversary

50th anniversary

2019 marked COTA NT’s 50th anniversary year of working in the Northern Territory, our  special projects and major events celebrated our ‘golden age’, as the organisation itself turned into a ‘senior’. 

In our 50th year of operation, we extended – as always – our thanks to supporters, members, program sponsorsvolunteers, Board and staff for their financial, in-kind and voluntary contributions over the years, which has created both a rich and notable history and, we hope, a better Territory for all seniors.
