We were very fortunate to be chosen to be part of the 2017 Southern Downs Harvest at Melrose Station! After contributing our labour to a fantastic event we received an extremely generous donation to the Society.
Thank you, Southern Downs Harvest for your donation to us this year – and for all the work you have done for the Killarney Community.
For more on Southern Downs Harvest, go to their facebook or webpage.
This year’s Waddle & Saddle is scheduled for this weekend – Sunday 28 August 2016.
Current forecasts are for sunny weather! After all this rain the river is running quite high today (Wed) but we anticipate it will drop by the weekend.
If the event is cancelled this we will advise on this website, on the Killarney Show and Rodeo Society Facebook page and by email if an email address has been advised. If the event is cancelled registration fees will be refunded by cheque or bank deposit.
Did you know? We have had rain in the week preceeding the event for the past two years! So much for dry August.
There have been some serious moves afoot at the Killarney Showgrounds this year!
In July, the Supper Room was moved to a new home in pride of place at the side of the Show Arena. We were fortunate to receive a grant to restump and replace the guttering on the building. Keep an eye out for further action….
The old show pavilion has been adopted by the Killarney Pony Club and moved to a new location in early August. KPC will now begin the task of transforming it into their new home. One of the key features of this building is the original Crow’s Ash floor, one of the only things remaining of the building after the tornado in 1968!
These two buildings have worked long and hard for many, many years. But like some hard working committee members were beginning to get a bit tired.
After some new stumps and TLC they will live to bring joy to many more people!
This move is one of the key steps in the Show Society’s 25 year plan. We are very excited to see some of the hard work put into the plan finally paying off.
Our goal is to make the Show Grounds a valuable asset for entire Killarney Community. We are very satisfied to see these historic buildings take their place in a new future!
