THE Presbyterian Church’s men’s breakfast on Saturday morning, at the Henty Men’s Shed, was attended by a dozen or so men and it was reported as a nice social gathering.
Neil Meyer and Lachie Willis barbecued with Neil McDonald and Craig Nicholas frying up some tomatoes and mushrooms.
HENTY’S 115th show will be remembered as the best show since the Centenary Show. Crowd numbers were well in excess of what were expected.
The temperature settled around the mid-20s with a gentle breeze keeping things coolish.
Yes, the earlier hot spell did affect many of the horticulture and vegetable sections in the pavilion, but that time appears to have been spent being creative in-doors and there were some very unique pieces of art entered.
The show and shine have never had so many entries.
About 40 vehicles were expected and around 120 turned up.
The horse and dog events both had a strong showing this year.
Those with poultry were pleased that the lower temperatures allowed them to show their birds.
Normally the high 30s to low 40s would put a halt to their section.
The dog jumping had those attending urging the dogs on; a great bit of fun for the dogs and audience alike.
The committee are to be congratulated for their efforts and they have started working on next year’s show which holds promise of being just as good.
Warren Dale received a Life Membership in recognition for his dedication to developing the show and for his hard work in keeping it all running smoothly on the day – and the weeks and months before and after each show.
