PAYMENT FOR SERVICE
$32,400 is being written in cheques by the Wagin Agricultural Society's Treasurer Anita Lunt in June
These cheques are payment for services performed by Wagin community groups in support of the annual show.
An additional $500 is to be paid to the Flying Cockies to pass on to the RFDS.
The Make Smoking History Wagin Woolorama could not happen without the dedicated support of not-for-profit organisations within the town and their many members who contribute to ensure essential aspects of the event are performed well.
The Ag Society's president Malcolm Edward said that the endeavours of the community were the success story of Woolorama. The Committee aims to keep maximum dollars in the town so that the town and region grows stronger. For that reason wherever possible it invites the participation from Wagin district interest groups.
* The groups to receive payment are Wagin Action Group $6500 (for attending Woolorama's gates), Wagin Rotary Club $6500 (for facilitating all support aspects of the Trade Fair), and Wagin Lions Club $6500 (for organising and managing the main bars).
* For providing a valuable attraction to the March event and for presenting the social history of the district, the Wagin Historical Society is paid $2800.
* Wagin Fire and Rescue provide services in getting the grounds safety-ready for visitors and are paid $1200 to do so.
* Overnight security from Thursday to Sunday is provided by the Wagin Cricket and Hockey Clubs for which they are paid $6000.
* The Saturday night rodeo bar depends on the expertise of Wagin Football Club members and for this they are paid $2000.
* Volunteers from the Wagin Youth Centre man the parking gate and are paid $900 for this service.
Being able to make this infusion of funds into the Wagin community is a high point in the Ag Society's year. Not a gift, it is payment for effort and diligence, with thankfulness to all locals who work so hard to present the town and show to best advantage.
These are not the only funds distributed by the Society to the Community. As well as trades and services purchased from the town's businesses throughout the year, some excess funds are dispersed to other organisations in September.
