Wow, what an amazing week it has been!
It was wonderful to receive the Best Local Youth Week Award at the Local Government Awards in Sydney. Sarah Williams and the Community and Tourism team do a great job engaging our youth in the Forbes Shire and putting on events like Youth Week. Congratulations to you all! The team are recruiting for the Forbes Youth Action Team, check our website or call Sarah.
Another great youth program is the Boys to the Bush program. We should all get behind this. These camps give young boys the opportunity to be surrounded by positive influences while learning good values and skills. I can’t rave about this enough.
Having known Adam Demamiel for many years, I know this will continue to great things.
We have our Council Meeting next Thursday, 15th August. Don’t forget to tune in to Facebook Live to watch. It has been committee meeting week this week and boy it’s been busy! Economic Development, Council Briefing Session, Australia Day plans and Governance.
On behalf of you the community I want to thank the Councillors for their dedication and commitment. There is a lot to get through in these meetings and they are so important ensuring we make the right decisions for our community.
I would like to congratulate Northparkes Mines celebrating 25 years this week. They have been a fantastic corporate citizen to Forbes. We are excited about the next 25 years.
Until next week, God Bless.
Your Mayor, Phyllis Miller
