A thank you for Euroa Mini Rail

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

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.”
