What a show!
75th Show a Stunning Success!
Our 75th show was one of the biggest on record with an increase of both attendees and exhibitors. Once again as tradition seems to dictate, our gate numbers were again up on the previous years show which is testament to the appeal of "Lets spend a day out at Dalgety show", the people just keep coming.
Georgia Walters proudly opened the 75th show following on from her grand mother Judy last year. Georgia's speech was inspiring & touched on mental health issues facing our farmers and those living in rural areas, with the crowd applauding loudly at the end of her address.
Our life members in 2019 were Vickii Wallace, Marty and Liz Walters, Anthony Wellsmore, Jeanette Cassilles and Tracey Leck. This group of individuals have collectively given the Dalgety Show Society about 200 years of service!
They are wonderful community people, each giving up their time over a number of years and in most cases, decades to our show society and its this type of dedication that ensures the longevity and success of our show.
President Julie Hedger was incredibly overwhelmed by the number of people that came along to the 75th show and thanks them again for their continued support and love for the show.
We also had the pleasure of welcoming everyone to view our new sheep and poultry pavilions both wonderful additions to the showground.
We warmly thank all of our volunteers, exhibitors, stall holders, family and friends for their continued support of the Dalgety Show committee. Its a real mark of success and admiration when people return to a show year after year and this is not missed by Julie and her committee.
We could also not make the show as wonderful as it is without the support of Snowy Monaro Regional Council and the local MOP team who worked tirelessly over the week prior to the show to ensure the showground and pavilions are in tip top shape.
There are already some things being discussed for our 76th show in 2020 as we continue to strive to be the best little show on the Monaro and surrounds and we look forward to again delivering our very best for you all in 2020.
