Rural ambassador chosen
Emma Hemme has been chosen as the Seymour Agricultural and Pastoral Society’s 2018 Rural Ambassador, following the successful Great Seymour Show Off held at Kings Park earlier this month.
Ms Hemme works with Seymour Ag Supplies in Emily St.
She graduated from La Trobe University with Honours in Agricultural Science and lives at Whittlesea.
Her family has a cattle property in Northern Victoria and she has been involved with showing for most of her life.
Ms Hemme was presented with her sash and certificate as well as a cheque for $100 by Ag Society president Jason Ronald, and secretary Pam Beerens at the recent meeting.
Ms Hemme will compete in the group final at Seymour next April.
Two Seymour Girl Guides, Evelyn Krammer and Savannah Bradford, were presented with their Junior Baden Powell Award on October 15. The pair had to complete many challenges to be awarded this badge. There are different challenge areas involved, such as Promise and Law, Guiding, Services, Patrol System, Outdoors. It was an excellent job done by both Guides.— Beryl Bebbington, Seymour Girl Guides’ Leader
