A thank you for Euroa Mini Rail
THE Australian National Show and Shine has presented a Certificate of Appreciation and a cheque for $500 to the Euroa Mini Railway for their contribution to this year’s immensely successful Euroa Show and Shine event held on October 7.
Show and Shine treasurer, Anthony Clota and committee member Tony Clota presented the goodies to Euroa Mini Rail president Wendy McDonald together with Tim Miller last week.
Part of the Euroa Show and Shine’s commitment under their constitution is to support local charities and worthy causes in the Euroa community.
This year, the mini railway was one of the major family attractions at the show, and volunteer members worked throughout the day to provide free rides for more children than the 2017 event, which saw over 400 kids ride for free.
Anthony Clota said that with the successful promotion of the Euroa Show and Shine as a “family friendly” event, the free mini train rides are a key attraction for families with kids.
Mr Clota said they are holding a pre-Christmas committee meeting in early December, and will be presenting more donations to local clubs and organisations at that time.
“Even our sponsors have acknowledged that for a Show and Shine, the number of families coming to Euroa is outstanding, they love it,” Mr Clota said.
“With multiple bands, market and trade stalls and children’s activities, we are head and shoulders above other motor shows which only attract motoring people.
“We are truly a family event.”
