The Lions Club of Yarrawonga has donated the proceeds of their annual Wool Show to the Yarrawonga & Mulwala Agricultural Show Society.
At the presentation Lion Ollie Tufvesson addressed the show committee meeting informing those present of the history of the Wool Show and how it depended on the generosity of the local wool growers.
The Wool Show has been operating for 51 years and every year farmers have been donating fleeces which are judged and the proceeds of the sale of the fleeces are then donated to a local organisation.
Ollie also highlighted the generous donation from Elders and the ongoing contribution of Burnie Lee.
The proceeds of the 2016 show amounted to $2,200 and the cheque was presented to Donna Knuckey from the Yarrawonga & Mulwala Show Society to be utilised to improve the sheep yards at the showgrounds.
