Anniversary plans coming together

As the 125th anniversary of incorporation, 2023 is a special year for the residents of the city Dauphin and Dauphin mayor David Bosiak is hoping to bring several community organizations together to plan a special celebration.

Incorporated as a village in 1898, a town in 1901 and a city in 1998, the history of the community is worth celebrating.

“It’s a big deal for us, 125 years,” Bosiak said. “We (the City of Dauphin) want to work with, and have already started to reach out to a couple of the groups - Fort Dauphin Museum, the train station museum and the arts center - to really fulfill the plans that some of them have already come up with in terms of celebrating our 125th. So there’s some really neat ideas that have been percolating and we will get that going soon.”

The collaborative effort aligns with Bosiak’s message of everyone pulling in the same direction for the common good.

“I really think that getting these organizations to work a little bit more closely together will be really good for them and good for us, as well, as a community,” he said. “The real positive thing is all of the groups that we’ve engaged with have a willingness to have these discussions."

"These groups are all functioning effectively, have great volunteer engagement and are really meeting a lot of the outcomes that they’ve sort of posted or projected for themselves. And that’s just good for all of us, so we’re really working on that kind of a philosophy of what’s good for one is likely good for all.”
