NEXT MEETING: 24 October 2018
2018 President's Message
I would like the take this opportunity to welcome everyone to our 101st Annual Show.
The Committee and volunteers have once again put together a day of entertainment for all to enjoy on this Spring Father’s Day. The pavilion is always a must-see and make sure you get to the livestock sheds, trade displays and local community-run stalls throughout the day. There is a lot of entertainment around the grounds to fill in the day, but be sure to witness the family fun after the Grand Parade with our Father’s Day Games of traditional games like three-legged races, sack races, the egg & spoon race and more.
It’s been an exciting year of events for our committee with the Rose Show in November, Poultry Auction in March, and our Three-Sheep Dog Trials over the long weekend in June. All have been run extremely successfully, showcasing and attracting visitors to our town.
Congratulations to our 2017 The Land Sydney Royal Showgirl Maicie Close, who proudly represented the Show Society and town at the Zone Final in Hay, becoming the first Finley Showgirl to progress to the NSW state final held at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Be sure to catch up with Maicie to discuss her Showgirl journey experience.
Congratulations also to Michelle Barnes, our 2017 VAS Junior Show Ambassador, who represented us at the GVRSA Regional Dinner in Shepparton earlier this year, being named the regional representative for the state final. Miss Billie Matheson also won the Junior Carrot & Date Muffin competition, and both are progressing to the State Final in Ballarat as this schedule goes to print.
Thank you to our sponsors for their continued support to the show. Without this tremendous support, our show would not be the success is it to date.
Appreciation must also go to all Show Society Executive and Committee members, and volunteers, for all the valued hard work they put in across all events run by our Show Society - Thank You.
I hope you all enjoy our Community Show Day and I wish all the fathers a Happy Father’s Day.
