Many special thanks to all those who helped in any way possible during last week, leading up to the show.
Angela Reimann offered to help in any way possible, and was so greatly appreciated. She had the mammoth task of sorting thru’ the ribbons, sashes, and felt ribbons which came in the post mid-week. To Jenny – Chris our Secretary’s foster mum – who helped in so many areas of the show, besides helping Chris & Darren to look after their children after-school hours – how wonderful is that! To Dagmar for helping during last week. It made the task of receiving entries so much easier and your expertise with organising sections. To Darren, our President, who took a week off work, to do so many tasks leading up to the Show. To the Lions Club members who put up signage around the Barossa in strategic places – how many of the public noticed them!
Trevor and Geoff had the huge task of sorting prize monies for sections which gave out prize monies. Behind the scenes, the Show Committee did a lot of things that are too numerous to mention. The Show Book was once again beautifully presented. The many sponsors who do wish to keep Angaston Show going. It was our 121st Show and we were blessed with an extremely pleasant Show Day. So, huge thank you.
