AFTER two weeks of uncertainty about its future, the Murtoa Agriculture Show is locked in for a 134th year.
Outgoing show society president Les Loeliger said the future of the show had been up in the air since the society’s annual general meeting last month.
“At the meeting two weeks ago we were unable to find someone on the committee to fill the roles of president and secretary,” he said.
“We decided to hold an open public meeting on Wednesday night.
“We wanted to see if the community of Murtoa were interested in seeing the show continue and if they would like to help.
“There was a surprising attendance of about 30 and there was an indication that about half those people were interested in joining the committee.”
The show will go ahead in October.
Mr Loeliger said the committee was still looking for a secretary and president.
“We’re holding a second public meeting next week to see if we can fill those roles,” he said.
Mr Loeliger said the show had been an important part of the Murtoa community for many years.
“It’s a great family day out and gives people a chance to showcase their skills, whether it be growing vegetables or making art,” he said.
