ON behalf of the Naracoorte P & A Society Inc I would like to thank the community of Naracoorte and surrounding districts for the strong support that was displayed for the recent 149th Naracoorte Pastoral and Agricultural Society Show.
Over recent years the show has been steadily growing, with the number of competitive entries continuing to rise at a noticeable rate.
I could not have felt more pleased walking around on show day and seeing so many families and individuals enjoying themselves.
After all that is what the show is all about, an opportunity for all members of the community to have an enjoyable day out, admiring the many talents of our local citizens and catching up with neighbours and friends.
A special thank you must go to the committee. Fresh ideas mixed with traditional knowledge makes for a wonderful combination of enthusiasm and experience.
It is a pleasure to work with such a focused and delightful group of volunteers.
Congratulations to our Rural and Young Rural Ambassadors, Chelsea Dahlenberg and Tom Brewer. We wish you all the best as you prepare to represent our society and town at the SE and Border Show Societies Association finals and we are sure you will represent us well.
Of course we must thank our generous sponsors. An event of this nature would not be possible without the valued support of the many local businesses that have contributed to the show this year.
We are fortunate to have formed some wonderful partnerships with a number of local businesses, some that have been supporting us now for a number of years.
Once again thank you Naracoorte for making your annual show such a wonderful community event and we look forward to seeing you at the milestone 150th show on Saturday October 19, 2013!
