OPEN DAY SUC­CESS

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

CHILDERS was on show over the weekend when the Childers Cham­ber of Com­merce held its in­au­gu­ral Open Day, show­cas­ing the district’s businesses and at­trac­tions.

Satur­day’s event was hailed a “huge suc­cess” by cham­ber pres­i­dent John Russo, who es­ti­mated that at least 600 people came through the doors of Kowbi Place to check out what Childers has on of­fer.

Mr Russo said he was “ec­static” with the num­ber of people turn­ing out to sup­port the event, as well as the high num­ber of stall hold­ers.

Sixty-five ex­hibitors from the Isis district were on hand to show off their prod­ucts and ser­vices.

Mr Russo said he was par­tic­u­larly pleased with the turnout con­sid­er­ing it took just four weeks of plan­ning.

“A lot of credit has got to go to Paul Dwyer and his team, as well as cham­ber mem­bers who got on board and sup­ported it,” Mr Russo said.

Mr Russo said he had re­ceived a “very pos­i­tive re­ac­tion” to the Open Day from businesses and the broader com­mu­nity, and were sup­port­ive of fu­ture events.

“People are ask­ing if this is go­ing to be a yearly event,” he said.

Mr Russo has not ruled out the pos­si­bil­ity of fu­ture events.
