Good numbers at Lucindale Show

AFTER two years of extreme heat, the Lucindale Show committee welcomed milder weather conditions on Saturday.

Numbers were up as an strong crowd of locals and visitors supported the community event.

Treasurer Georgie McKay said she had received some fantastic feedback from those who attended.

"I've had numerous emails, phone calls and texts...it has all been very positive," she said.

"It has been hot in the past so we were really lucky.

"It was the simple things we had set up that seemed to do really well."

A balloon popping wall which children threw darts at was a big hit, as was the dunking machine.

"Local policeman Jason Doig was on it (the dunking machine) for a while and the children certainly enjoyed having a friendly throw at him," Mrs McKay said.

"The newest school teacher Celeste Pietsch was a big hit with the younger children - she teaches the Year 4/5 class - and they all had a bit of fun dunking her."

There were a good number of indoor exhibits and Mrs McKay said she was very impressed with the quality of the children's art on show.

In the pet show there were more entries than she said she could ever remember including a baby alpaca, rat, guinea pig and pet zucchini.

The show's annual meeting will be held at the Lucindale Hotel from 7.30pm on May 19.

Everyone is invited to attend.

"We have lots of long serving members who are looking to pass on the reins so we would love for community members, if they are interested, to step up," Mrs McKay said.
