Town of Dunn Calendar

We are working on a calendar featuring photos that highlight the best things about living in our unique and beautiful town. Twelve or more selected photos will be included and the calendar will be sold as a fundraiser for preserving open space.  A complimentary calendar will be provided to each person contributing a photo that is selected for this project. 

Photo images may show any season or time period. Subjects may include outdoor activities of all kinds, nature, architecture, agriculture, wildlife, landscape, water, people, and any other photos taken in the town. A photo will be selected for each month of the calendar plus front and back cover images. We will include a “Photo by (name)” line to give credit to contributors. Each person may submit up to 24 images.

How to submit your photos:

Step 1) Attach up to three high-resolution photos to an email message with the subject line “Photo entry by (your name)” and send to:  townhall@town.dunn.wi.us  Repeat if you wish to submit more than 3 images. If images are too large, you may have to send them individually. In your message, we would love to hear about where and when the photos were taken.

Step 2) Fill out a Photo Permission Form, by clicking here.  Permission may be needed from people featured in photos (if any) that are selected for publication.

Next Extra Curbside Pickup: 6 am on June 7th or 8th (date follows your normal trash pickup day)

The next extra curbside pickup date is June 7th or June 8th (date follows your normal trash pickup day).  Some restrictions apply.  Appliances, electronics, pianos, pesticides, tires, batteries, paint, yard waste, liquids, and construction materials may not be left at the curbside.

Cotton protectors are not acceptable. These bags can be purchased at most stores that sell moving equipment or bedding items. Mattresses and box springs will not be picked up if they are not in the sealed bags.
