Something for Nothing
This year, in appreciation of the significant role that seniors have played in the development of Wagin, the Agricultural Society is offering free entry to age pensioners.
Last year Make Smoking History Wagin Woolorama permitted children to enter the showgrounds free and offered free side show rides.
This year, in appreciation of the significant role that seniors have played in the development of Wagin, the Agricultural Society is offering free entry to age pensioners. Normally they would pay $10 if not a member of the Society.
With the 2015 focus on Anzacs and the Anzac Centenary, the Committee took the view it would like to express its appreciation for those who have seen many seasons of life.
Historians of the 10th Light Horse Brigade will attend the show in soldiers' uniforms of the Great War and there is planned to be a book launch at the show, the focus of which is local interest in the Gallipoli campaign of World War 1.
The free entry is extended to age pension card holders only. The adult gate fee is $20. People holding a Seniors Card, or a Disability Pension Card or Health Care Card, or any other card, do not qualify for the concessional entry. Pensioners must present their card at the gate to take up the offer of free entry.
The Ag Society has only three real income sources - trade fair site fees, sponsorship and gate takings. To offer free entry to a sector of the population is a generous offer, that, it is hoped, will be reflected in increased people at the show.
Sponsorship from the state government, via the Royalties for Regions, and administered by the Department of Agriculture, allows the Committee to allow children under 16 accompanied by an adult to enter the 2015 show free. Students otherwise will pay $5 to enter the grounds.
Date for the show are Friday 6 and Saturday 7 March 2015; two days of county style fun.
It's not often that you can get something for nothing.
