From the pres­i­dent

Waitaki Herald - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

As al­ways, the A & P As­so­ci­a­tion has been very ac­tive over the past year with the show­grounds, host­ing Foot­ball Waitaki through the soc­cer sea­son and Dog Obe­di­ence North Otago. Along with var­i­ous events through­out the year, this has en­sured con­tin­ued use of the grounds.

My thanks needs to go to our grounds­men who are con­tin­u­ally work­ing to keep the grounds in good con­di­tion.

Thanks also needs to go to Plun­ket Elec­tri­cal, who, as our ma­jor spon­sor for the show, pro­vides sup­port to the or­gan­i­sa­tion at var­i­ous lev­els from elec­tri­cal, fi­nan­cial and tech­ni­cal sup­port for which we are very grate­ful.

The gen­eral com­mit­tee needs to be men­tioned for its tire­less be­hind-the-scenes work, with­out which the show would not take place. From the new­est mem­bers to our life mem­bers and pa­trons, they have gone out of their way to sup­port me as the pres­i­dent, mak­ing my job much eas­ier.

I would es­pe­cially like to thank the A & P As­so­ci­a­tion sec­re­tary, whose tire­less and valu­able work en­sures things get done.

Fi­nally, I would like to ex­tend my thanks to the public who sup­port the show and other ac­tiv­i­ties the A & P As­so­ci­a­tion is in­volved with. With­out their sup­port none of th­ese events can con­tinue.

I am look­ing for­ward with great ex­cite­ment and op­ti­mism for a very suc­cess­ful 2015 show.

Op­ti­mistic: North Otago A&P Show com­mit­tee Matthew Miller is look­ing to­wards a suc­cess­ful 2015 show.

Show time: The show is the time ru­ral and town peo­ple alike can show their prime stock or pro­duce, horses and dogs among other things.
