Milllicent Show in spotlight

An accolade has recently come the way of the Millicent Agricultural, Horticultural and Pastoral Society.

President Neville Copping and fellow committee members Susie Hutchesson, Sue Vanderheul and Irene Dickins were invited to address the annual symposium of the Agricultural Societies Council of South Australia at the Wayville Showgrounds in Adelaide.

The 2021 Millicent Show was chosen as the “show in focus” and the four local delegates explained the success of the event with the assistance of a power-point presentation.

Another highlight of the symposium was the final of the annual Young Rural Ambassador contest.

Meanwhile, the 2022 Millicent Show is just over three months away on November 4-6.

Bookings are now being taken for trade sites and other preparations are being made.

“If you wish to enter some of our indoor or outdoor competitions now is the time to start preparing,” a Millicent Show spokesperson said.

“Keep your sheep and cattle or horses in fine form, plant your vegies or flowers, prune your roses and do not forget to fertilise when the first growth buds appear, start your paintings, quilts, handicrafts and photos and get your teachers to think about what they are going to get your children to put in the school display.”
