THE dust has now settled over another successful Royal Darwin Show. We hope you enjoyed the many highlights this year. The high point for me was bringing Alvin The Chipmunk to Darwin. Not only did Alvin meet hundreds of children at The Show Alvin and I turned up at the childrens ward at the Royal Darwin Hospital last week. It was a really special way of taking a piece of The Show to children in need of some fun. After many giggles and photos, this year was a truly memorable event. Looking ahead to August we welcome Seniors Month. Seniors Month is about celebrating the positive aspects of ageing and this years program offers seniors an opportunity to do just that. Take a look at the Seniors Month Calendar to find an event for you. Council programs for Seniors Month are booking out quickly. Popular events include the snapshot workshop at Karama Library, swing dancing lessons at the Lyons Community Centre, and an evening at the Deckchair Cinema. If youre a senior make sure you make August your month. Excitement is brewing with the Darwin Festival set-up under way. Each year, the Darwin community looks forward to the festival and this year is no exception. City of Darwin is pleased to once again provide event areas such as Civic Park, Darwin Entertainment Centre and the Amphitheatre for major events. I encourage you to come along and use these areas as a place to meet and relax with family and friends. During the festival, the City Library will be open for extended hours until 7pm on Monday to Friday, and there will be Festival Fun family activities taking place on most days between 5.30pm and 6.30pm at Civic Square. Check the schedule on our website at darwin.nt.gov.au/ libraries/events. Keeping the festival accessible enables our community and tourists to come and enjoy our great city and truly appreciate what Darwin has to offer. On election day this year, our community will take part in an important vote to secure direct federal funding for vital projects in our area such as local road and bike path upgrades. The result of a Yes vote will be to ensure that City of Darwin can continue to receive funding direct from the Federal government. Find out more about this important community issue at the website thefactssayyes.com.au. As you can see, there are many events and activities happening around and within your local community. Jump on our website at darwin.nt.gov.au for more information and join us on Facebook or Twitter to receive regular updates about whats on in the City of Darwin.
