Well, that was a busy weekend, starting Friday night with our Showgirl Presentation and annual Christmas dinner at the Goulburn Soldiers Club.
Breanna Hickey, 19, from Gunning, was sashed as our 2019 Goulburn Showgirl. She is a track work rider with race horse trainer Allan McRae from Yass. She understands what the agricultural shows mean to the community and the importance of the land and farming.
Having travelled to lots of small and larger shows, showing horses and sheep has helped her understand and appreciate the impact and contribution our farmers have on the community.
She will attend a Personal Development Weekend for Showgirls in Dubbo in February and the 2019 Zone 3 Showgirl Final at Cobargo on March 9.
We thank Graeme Welsh Real Estate, Lyn's Floral Studio, Beachless Beauty, Rubywood Candles and Priceline Pharmacy Goulburn for their support and sponsorship to our competition each year.
On Saturday December 1, we ran the last of our drought fundraisers for the year at Bunnings Goulburn, where we served a sausage sizzle to the customers. We will distribute the funds we raised to farmers in need.
We were also advised that Southern Tablelands Arts and the State CASP Panel approved a grant towards our new project, a “Short Film Festival”, next year. We are thankful as it is the only way we could afford to fund an event like this.
