Childers cel­e­brates show num­ber 99

Isis Town and Country - - News -

Peter War­ren, Childers Show So­ci­ety pres­i­dent ... we have the wood­chop back again this year.

THE lo­cal com­mu­nity is in for an ac­tion-packed week­end with the 99th Childers Show.

And if you thought or­gan­is­ers had their eye only for the 100th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions next year – think again.

Childers Show So­ci­ety pres­i­dent Peter War­ren said vol­un­teers had worked tire­lessly to make this year’s event mem­o­rable for young and old.

“All the work is start­ing to kick into gear and we’re putting the fi­nal touches on ev­ery­thing,” he said.

Mr War­ren said school chil­dren from the re­gion had dec­o­rated more than 800 sweet pota­toes for the pav­il­ion.

“Also, we have the wood­chop back again this year,” he said.

“And by the looks of it we will have a record num­ber of horses in­volved with the jump­ing and show­ing be­cause all the sta­bles are booked out.”

The glam­orous Childers show­girls will be min­gling with the crowd and there will be plenty of food to keep fam­i­lies en­er­gised.

Mr War­ren urged lo­cals and those from afar to sam­ple what was on of­fer.

“We are look­ing for the sup­port of the Childers com­mu­nity to help make this mem­o­rable,” he said.
