Still on awards, nominations are currently open for the 2011 Dubbo City Community Service Awards. Nominations close 31 October. The awards, commonly referred to as the Dubbo Day Awards, are presented on 23 November each year to mark the anniversary of Dubbo’s proclamation as a village in 1849. One of the most pleasing aspects of our community is that we have so many people who are prepared to volunteer and help in so many different aspects of our society. The Dubbo Day Awards are designed to recognise some of those volunteers who, without expectation of reward or praise, go about their lives helping others. These people are the absolute building blocks of our community so if you know someone who you think is deserving, don’t hesitate to submit a nomination. Read More...

There have already been two successful movie nights this week and the movies continue right through this week with a different movie each night. The movie tonight has been chosen by a survey process. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Gaol one night this week. Read More...

Last weekend was like a DREAM come true for one hardworking committee in Dubbo with the launch of our grandest festival. The DREAM Festival has been some time in the making but this community-driven event has certainly proved that all you need is a vision and some willing and enthusiastic people to make it happen. A little bit of rain wasn’t going to hurt anyone on Saturday as Zoo Grooves kicked off the month-long event while on Sunday the Western Plains Cultural Centre saw more than a thousand people experience some good old-fashioned family fun. This might sound strange coming from someone with a technology background, but I love the idea of turning off the gaming console and having an egg-and-spoon race! Read More...
