There’s something about a rural show. It’s the sound of greetings called out to friends who haven’t met up in a year. It’s the smell of scones from the baking tent. It’s the celebration of everything
that makes that region wonderful.
And for the Frontier Services community, it’s the chance to connect.
Our Bush Chaplains are often travelling hours each day to try to cover the enormous distances in their area. But at a show, everyone is together in one place.
People we meet at these events are often astonished and delighted to discover the ways we can help them face life’s challenges. Many can barely believe that we have volunteers willing to travel to help on their property, or that our Bush Chaplains are there for anyone, in any situation. It means an enormous amount to them to know that people like you care.
Frontier Services will be at the following shows later this year. If you or someone you know will be in the area, pop in to say g’day:
- NSW: AgQuip Field Days August 22-24
- QLD: Birdsville Races September 1-2
- WA: Chapman Valley Rodeo September 30
Whether you’re experiencing it as a local or travelling in from the coast, there’s something about a rural show.
