Sing Australia Dubbo singing at the Anzac Dawn service held in Dubbo and then again at the Anzac Service held at Geurie. One of our long time members Tiger Paxton welded together a platform for the conductor. Well done Tiger.

Comment: Wonderful all round. You are so important to both communities and have been for a long time. Congratulations ...
This was another fun sing at this nursing home where we have not sung at for about 5 years. They remembered us though and we suspect will do so even more after our great singing today. As always, McNamara's band is a great hit, and thanks to those who consistently remember to bring musical instruments to pass out to add to the fun. The residents' participation in the Pack up/Tipperary partner song was fantastic, and it was wonderful to see so many mouths moving for so many of the old Anzac favourites. Abide with Me was really well known. Thanks Pam for doing a great job in your inaugural MC role, and, as always to Chris and Emma. Emma's solo of "You'll Never Walk Alone" was very moving. The residents obviously enjoyed themselves so much that several of our songbooks appear to have been secreted away!!
For many of us, after a short sleep we will be at the Dawn Service.
We were very excited to have our first Singing Together gig in The Levee Maitland on 21/4/18. The Sing Australia Concept of encouraging everyone to sing came across beautifully as we invited passersby to grab a songbook and join us for a song, We had quite a few people stop for a song or two. We were all very encouraged by the success of the day and we are looking forward to doing this again next month. I have included a photo from the day for the Facebook page. Kind Regards, Alicia, Robyn and Denise from Maitland
