New president sets Deni Truck Show date
John Creenaune is back at the helm of the Deniliquin Truck Show committee, and working toward a ‘normal’ event on October 22 this year.
Mr Creenaune succeeds Evan Whitbourne, who has been committee president for the last four years.
Mr Whitbourne remains on the committee as vice president.
Mr Creenaune said after a number of COVID-19 impacted years, it will be good to host a traditonal event this year.
“We hope to be back with a huge attendance as we haven’t had a show since 2019 due to the pandemic,” he said.
“The official date for the Truck Show and Wall Of Fame Dinner is October 22.
“Both events will be on the same day, rather than a Friday dinner and a Saturday expo.”
Other executive members elected at the AGM include Gaylene Homer as secretary and Warrick Petersen as treasurer/vice president.
The general committee consists of Andrew Dunn and Jenni Marsh, Ronald Brown, Kate Henderson, Fiona Rose-Petersen, Janine Lowry, Terence Grimison, Darren W Bramley, Tim Simmons, Lyn Rose, Brett Howitt and Christy Morton, and new members Karen Martin, Margaret Brown, Brad Knight and Gaylene Homer.
