The vol­un­teers are to be con­grat­u­lated

Isis Town and Country - - 2015 Childers Show -

CHILDERS will con­tinue its proud tra­di­tion of pre­sent­ing its an­nual show on Satur­day and con­grat­u­la­tions are due, not only to the cur­rent or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee, but the many pre­vi­ous teams of vol­un­teers who have en­abled the Childers Show to mark its 99th an­niver­sary this week­end.

Coun­try Shows have been find­ing it in­creas­ingly dif­fi­cult to sur­vive in a tough eco­nomic cli­mate but ob­vi­ously Childers Show Com­mit­tee har­bours the same pas­sion as did those pi­o­neers who were in­stru­men­tal in pre­sent­ing those ini­tial shows decades ago.

The Childers Show is an im­por­tant so­cial fo­cal point for the com­mu­nity.

It not only al­lows peo­ple who are proud of the live­stock, the pro­duce, pho­to­graphic abil­i­ties, cooking or horse rid­ing skills to be put on dis­play, ei­ther in the cen­tre ring or the pav­il­ion, but en­cour­ages res­i­dents to meet at this show­case event in a so­cial at­mos­phere.

The Show Com­mit­tee have again shown ini­tia­tive and in­ge­nu­ity in pro­vid­ing a pro­gram that will of­fer some­thing to ev­ery mem­ber of the fam­ily.

I be­lieve it is one of the great re­lax­ations and ex­tremely en­joy­able past times to sit back in the main grand­stand, en­joy hot chips and a cup of tea and watch the great ar­ray of events that in­vari­ably are part and par­cel of the Childers Show.

Throw in the wood­chop­ping and at night a sen­sa­tional fire­works dis­play and you have the in­gre­di­ents for a mar­vel­lous day out.

It’s great to see the Show Com­mit­tee has the Small An­i­mal Pet Show which I am cer­tain will en­cour­age plenty of lo­cal chil­dren to front up with those spe­cial pets of which they are justly proud.

I am cer­tain that as adults we all have fond mem­o­ries of past shows.

I cer­tainly look for­ward to be­ing part of the Childers Show cen­te­nary cel­e­bra­tions next year.

Con­grat­u­la­tions again to all in­volved in con­tin­u­ing this won­der­ful tra­di­tion that is the Childers Show. Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil mayor Mal For­man
