Getting into the festive spirit! Our Aged Care residents at Jandowae Domiciliary Care and Tara Community Care really know how to throw a Christmas party and decorate their trees 🌲 We loved seeing so many happy smiling faces! 😁

We were too busy looking forward to Santa's arrival to think that the Grinch would visit Dalby too. Overnight, vandals have badly damaged the Thomas Jack Park Rotary Rotunda and the brand new MyALL 107 Christmas Tree, which was only unveiled last week. Here at Council we're devastated by the attack, but we're looking forward to the ✨Christmas Magic ✨ our fantastic Parks and Open Spaces Crew and Western Downs Libraries team are about to produce to bring the cheer back to our community. On another note, does anyone have a spare 10 metre Christmas Tree we could borrow?

#throwbackthursday to when our fierce and fearless Council team went head-to-head with the best youth ballers from across the region at the Dalby 3s Basketball Carnival. What the team may lack in talent (we aren’t kidding ourselves), they certainly make up for in spirit #swish⠀ 📸: @emmea22⠀ #lovewesterndowns #community #slamdunk Read More
