SHOW OF PRAISE: Great job all round for 150th Anniversary

CONGRATULATIONS are extended to Mr Rex Green, President of the Clarence Pastoral and Agricultural Society Limited, board members and volunteers who contributed to the success of the 2016 Show which celebrated 150 years since its formation in 1866.  

  The grand parade was very special for the former Miss Grafton Showgirls who were invited to participate and celebrate 50 years of the Miss Showgirl competition conducted by the Society with the cutting of the celebration cake by Miss Grafton Showgirl 1969 Maxine McLennan (Brooks) at an afternoon tea in their honour.  

  "The Man from Snowy River" presentation under the banner of Mr Bruce Green was spectacular and congratulations and thanks must go to Bruce and his team.

Fireworks provided entertainment for young and old alike. Comments heard indicated they were the best seen for many years at the show.

The Demolition Derby was no doubt enjoyed by one and all and completed the end of the celebrations for the show.  

  Thanks again Rex and your team of board members and volunteers.

Ann M Edwards ( Ford), Grafton Showgirl 1972
