Big sup­port­ers of an­nual event

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Front Page - BY GRAEME MASSEY

Yar­ri­ambi­ack Shire again con­grat­u­lates the Lions Club of Speed for con­tin­u­ing to high­light and pro­mote the im­por­tant role agri­cul­ture plays in our re­gion.

Mallee Ma­chin­ery Field Days at Speed on July 31 and Au­gust 1 is an ideal op­por­tu­nity for farm­ers to meet with equipment man­u­fac­tur­ers and sup­pli­ers to see and talk about the in­no­va­tions and trends in agri­cul­ture, and how they can be ap­plied to their own farm­ing sit­u­a­tion.

The shire ac­knowl­edges the thou­sands of hours put into this ven­ture by the Speed Lions.

Their out­stand­ing ef­forts will en­sure this year’s event runs as smoothly and ef­fi­ciently as it has for the past three decades.

We also thank the clubs and or­gan­i­sa­tions that will­ingly of­fer their time and en­ergy to help the Lions by run­ning the var­i­ous food out­lets and as­sist­ing on the gate and with park­ing.

The towns and com­mu­ni­ties in our shire as well as those from neigh­bour­ing shires will be the fi­nan­cial ben­e­fi­cia­ries of these ef­forts.

The many hun­dreds of vis­i­tors will book ac­com­mo­da­tion, dine out and spend in their shops.

It is an eco­nomic boost that raises busi­ness con­fi­dence.

Hope­fully peo­ple tour­ing the Silo Art Trail will avail them­selves of the op­por­tu­nity to call in and see for them­selves how farm­ing in our re­gion is car­ried out.

As usual a shire mar­quee will be found on site

73. There will be ex­hibits and plenty of in­for­ma­tion and dis­plays on the ser­vices and projects the shire pro­vides.

Staff mem­bers and coun­cil­lors will at­tend on both days. It is an ideal op­por­tu­nity to drop in for a chat, raise any con­cerns you have, draw our at­ten­tion to is­sues we might have over­looked and seek ad­vice.

I wel­come all vis­i­tors and ratepay­ers to the an­nual Mallee Ma­chin­ery Field Days and look for­ward to meet­ing many of you at our site. • Graeme Massey is mayor of Yar­ri­ambi­ack Shire
