Palmer Street Singers delight our Dubbo residents

Residents at our new Dubbo Masonic Village enjoyed a performance recently from The Palmer Street Singers. This active a cappella choir have a repertoire that includes Gospel songs, old favourites, jazz and Celtic, modern and Irish numbers, and well known hymns and Christmas carols.

We’ll all be hoping we hear more of this delightful music in the future.

RFBI Kurri Kurri Masonic Village helping the homeless

Amaroo residents are currently collecting shopping bags of all shapes and sizes so that we can help create sleeping mats for the Hunter’s homeless population. It’s a process of cutting the bags into strips, tying the strips together then rolling them up into balls so the clever staff in Amaroo can crochet the plastic bags into warm waterproof mats.

Our Amaroo residents are loving the process and feel they are helping people less fortunate then themselves. It takes 700 shopping bags to make one 6ft mat. If you have any clean used shopping bags laying around at home feel free to drop them into Amaroo and we will put them to good use.

As an expansion of the quality retirement living provided to the Dubbo community for the past 30 years, the new Village offers further services, providing either full time residential care, or assistance for those who need extra help in the comfort of their own home through the RFBI Care at Home program.

The new RFBI Masonic Village is located on the Mitchell Highway and our first residents are moving in from 31 May. RFBI Care at Home services have already commenced and are now available to the wider Dubbo community. Continue reading
