Dayboro Show to Get Grant Boost

28/09/2012

The Dayboro Show will get a $9,728 boost with funding announced by the Newman Government.

The money has been allocated through Local Government Minister David Crisafulli's grants program and is designed to ensure communities throughout the region continue to host these signature events.

Pine Rivers MP, Mr Seath Holswich, said the funding for the Dayboro Show was a vote of confidence by the State in the important role local shows play in communities.

"We all know that money is tight at the moment," Mr Holswich said.

"We have a responsibility to make sure every cent counts, and bringing people together to showcase the best in the region, whether it's cattle, produce or cooking, is a tradition we're proud to support."

Many show societies have reported that without State support their annual show would fold.

"The Dayboro Show is a focal point in our community, and attracts many visitors to our region and I'm proud of the small role this grant will play," Mr Holswich said.

"The real heroes are the Show Society members who put in dedicated efforts, in many cases year after year, to provide this calendar highlight for local people."
