Connection and Collaboration were the themes for the launch of the 28th edition of Regional Lifestyle Magazine (RLM) last month featuring Parkes and Forbes.
Forbes Shire Mayor Phyllis Miller OAM welcomed 80 guests saying: “It was so important for us to showcase the beauti- ful communities in which we live. To have this edition launch during one of the driest times on record, I can’t tell you the value that this will have in terms of visitation.”
Parkes Shire Mayor Ken Keith OAM said: “It has been the tourism sector that has supported our communities during these drought times. Having a town 20 minutes down the road, I think it’s fantastic that we can support one another, as well as celebrate and share the success of each other’s events.”
Regional Lifestyle Magazine Editor, Elizabeth Tickle acknowledged the success of the partnership between the two regions. “This particular project has been six months in the making…113 pages dedicated to the beautiful Forbes and Parkes areas.”
The highlight of the evening was the welcome dance performed by the River Spirit Dancers which emphasised the importance of connecting with one another.
