There’s nothing we love more than seeing our wonderful community come together, and that’s exactly what happened at the Australia Day celebrations this week in Dubbo.
We’ve decided to use this week’s Wednesday Win to cheer on the Aussie Spirit shown by the community and then smooth running of the day thanks to our valued client, Dubbo City Council.
A crowd of more than 650 gathered at Victoria Park on Tuesday morning to celebrate what it means to be Australian.
Mayor Mathew Dickerson took a poetic approach to his Mayoral Address, choosing to read a poem by Mick Colliss but slightly modified, While Dubbo’s 2016 Ambassador Peter Hadfield encouraged residents to us January 27 to reflect on their lives and how they can be made better.
One of the greatest things about the Australia Day celebrations, along with welcoming new citizens to our city, is the fact that the quiet achievers in our community are recognised for their every-day achievements.
Six of Dubbo’s everyday heroes walked away with awards, having been honoured for their contribution to our marvelous community.
Big Blue Digital would like to congratulate the following award winners:
Citizen of the Year – Jack Anderson
Young Citizen of the Year – Michael Jeffrey
Cultural Person of the Year – Olaf Weyand
Sportsperson of the Year – Samuel Mould
Young Sportsperson of the Year – Jono Davis
Service to Sport Award – Albi Mastellotto
The community event was nothing out of the ordinary for Dubbo City Council, whose team members have set a high standard of event planning and implementation.
We’re looking forward to seeing what next year’s event entails and of course, to put another shrimp on the barbie on Australia 2017!
