Seniors Week has officially begun! We love an excuse for cake, and what better than celebrating the seniors across our region who have made the Western Downs the place it is today. Make sure to check out http://www.wdrc.qld.gov.au/visiting-western-downs/events/special-events/seniors-week-2017/ for the full list of Seniors Week events across our communities. ~ WDRC Communities Team

With the fantastic weather we've had over the past week, we've been reminiscing about the incredible local events our region has hosted in the last month. So, here's a little walk down memory lane (or should we say Market Lane) for your Friday afternoon as we celebrate one month since the huge success of Opera at Jimbour!
We're not the only ones looking forward to celebrating our senior citizens next week. Hazel Bird from Jandowae, who is a sprightly 75 years old, runs the Taralga Buzz newsletter for Taralga Home, is involved in the CWA and loves to help with anything and everything in her local community. What a legend! Our residents can join Hazel and our senior citizens at Council's free Seniors Week events happening across the region from Monday 21 August: www.wdrc.qld.gov.au/visiting-western-downs/events/special-events/seniors-week-2017/ #lovewesterndowns #regionalpride

It's not summer pool season yet, but the Tara Aquatic Centre is making the most out of this streak of warm and sunny weather, with our facilities across the region soaking up and creating lots of power from the sun's energy! It's a milestone day today with Council signing off on the last Stage 2 Solar Project, that's a total of 349 panels installed across 8 community facilities in less than two months!
