Shows im­por­tant to our towns

Isis Town and Country - - 2015 Childers Show -

THERE is al­ways a sense of ex­cite­ment this time of year as our re­gional an­nual shows come to town.

To our com­mu­ni­ties, the an­nual show means so much more than a cash in­jec­tion in the lo­cal econ­omy.

Our re­gional shows are an op­por­tu­nity to unite com­mu­ni­ties and pro­mote lo­cal achieve­ments in live­stock, pro­duce, jam pre­serv­ing, bak­ing and more. Childers is no dif­fer­ent. The Childers show en­cap­su­lates the qual­i­ties of the Isis com­mu­nity.

It is a chance to not only show­case your fine pro­duce with pride but serves as a meet­ing point for the com­mu­nity to come to­gether and catch up with old friends and rem­i­nisce over the good times.

Just like the dis­trict it rep­re­sents, the Childers Show is an event sat­u­rated by rich his­tory and has stood the test of time thanks to the ded­i­cated vol­un­teers be­hind the scenes.

The Childers Show would not be here to­day with­out the hard­work­ing mem­bers of the Isis Dis­trict PA&I Show So­ci­ety.

I congratulate the show so­ci­ety for their tire­less ef­forts and look for­ward to once again be­ing a part of your great event this week­end.

I urge ev­ery­one to sup­port your lo­cal show to en­sure the event con­tin­ues to thrive.

To­gether we can make this show big­ger and bet­ter. Stephen Bennett MP Queens­land State Mem­ber for Bur­nett
