Show sup­port is ap­pre­ci­ated

Central and North Burnett Times - - 2015 MONTO SHOW -

THE Monto Show So­ci­ety wants to thank all spon­sors, big and small, as well all the peo­ple who will make the show pos­si­ble this year.

Roy Goody made a do­na­tion, in mem­ory of his brother Tom Goody, to put to­wards troughs in the prime cat­tle yards. Roy also do­nated a beast for the weight guesser.

Irene Bishop made a do­na­tion in mem­ory of her hus­band Gra­ham Bishop, to­wards the pur­chase of a new head bale for the prime cat­tle sec­tion.

Gra­ham passed away last year and had been a show pres­i­dent and al­ways a big sup­porter of the Monto Show. Tom used to sell tick­ets all week­end of the show, and last year a plaque was put up at the weight guesser yards in mem­ory of Tom, who passed away just be­fore last year’s show.

Bill and Beryl Avis do­nated $100 to­wards the prize money in the horse sec­tion.

If any­one wants to spon­sor an event or make a do­na­tion, please con­tact the show so­ci­ety.

PHO­TOS: EMILY SMITH
