The Show Will Go On in Dayboro
The Dayboro Agricultural, Horticultural & Industrial Association show will be open for another year thanks to a cash grant from the 2014-15 Show Society Grants program.
Member for Pine Rivers, Seath Holswich MP, said the show would receive $9,728 through the grants program as part of the Newman Government’s strong plan to support regional communities.
Mr Holswich greatly encourages events such as this, as one of his top 5 priorities is to strengthen local community organisations and assist them in serving the Pine Rivers community.
“I congratulate the Dayboro Agricultural Horticultural and Industrial Association on receiving this grant, and look forward to attending their next show.
“I also want to recognise the on-going efforts of the volunteers and members of the Dayboro Agricultural, Horticultural and Industrial association who work behind the scenes to pull together our local Show” Mr Holswich said.
Local Government Minister, David Crisafulli MP, said show attendance figures were up by nearly 14 per cent in Queensland.
“It’s nice to see the local show still has an important role to play in keeping community spirit alive,” Mr Crisafulli said.
“Whether it’s cattle, fresh produce, sideshow alley or secret scone recipes, the fact is Queenslanders love their local show and it’s important they keep rolling up to support and celebrate what makes their town great.
