Businessmen and women say thank you to a town icon

IT WAS a night of reminiscing and celebration as businessmen and women gathered to appreciate Waminda's new refurbishments and services, and to also say thank you to a town icon.

John Davies has worked as an optometrist in Dalby for as long as many locals can remember, and recently announced his retirement from work.

He was recognised for his contribution to the town with a certificate of appreciation as guests shared fond memories and words of appreciation.

Waminda's facilities were also on display for the night.

Guests were invited to explore the building and appreciate the many updates the company has experienced this year.

Waminda have also come into funding that allowed them to expand their services which will give residents the chance to learn lifestyle-related skills like cooking, grooming, and technological skills.

Take a look at some photos from the night:
