The official delegation left Dubbo last week.

“Following the Minokamo delegation’s visit to Dubbo to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Sister City relations in June, council has now organised an official delegation to take part in further festivities in Minokamo on Sunday, 2 November 2014.

“I will be attending with councillor Smith, David Dwyer and Ian McAlister on behalf of Dubbo City Council. We will be joined by ten Dubbo residents who are members of the Sister City Advisory Committee or have hosted Minokamo delegates in the past.

“I am thrilled to be able to travel to Minokamo to celebrate this wonderful milestone,” Dubbo City Council mayor Mathew Dickerson said.

The group attended Gifu Castle, a soccer match between FC Gifu and Oita Trinita, a barbecue at Minokamo Recreational Park and Forest and a formal reception to celebrate the anniversary.

The trip is a self-funded excursion for all delegates, with councillors, council staff and residents responsible for paying their own travel and accommodation costs.
