A family tradition

Three generations, Stanley Primary School student Sam Korpershoek (fourth from left), mum Melanie Colville and Sam’s great-grandparents, John and Margaret Walters, gather alongside (from left) Zoe Lakin, Hunter Sutton-Collins, Kyarna Elliott and Adam Allen for the kite-making experience ahead of next weekend’s annual Circular Head Show.

Fun. Preparations for next weekend’s Circular Head Show are well underway as schools and community members get crafty ahead of the annual event.

Stanley Primary School recently enlisted the help of great-grandparents, John and Margaret Walters, to show pupils how to make a kite. They then helped cover them for students to decorate in time for displaying at the show, and flying on the last day of school for 2016.

On Friday evening, organisers from the Circular Head Show Society enjoyed a record attendance at their annual dinner held at the Stanley Recreation Ground.

Rob Woolley, of Tas Foods and Bellamy’s Organic, was guest speaker for the night and guests also heard from Senator Eric Abetz, Joan Rylah MP and Agritas Trade College chairman Michael Buckby.

The highlight of the evening was Life Membership awarded to past president and Trade and Export Cattle inaugural committee member of 33 years, Milton de Jonge.

Certificates of Merit for longtime recognition of service to the society were presented to John Tatlow and Ian Wells.

All three members can boast family involvement that dates back to the first show in 1907.

Emmerton Park Auxiliary provided a beautiful meal, with produce and goods for the night supplied by local and north-west businesses.

Circular Head Agricultural Society’s 108th annual show will be held at Stanley Recreation Ground on Saturday December 3.
