Show is 'o' Kaye
KAYE HANSON is a busy woman but she answered the appeal to save the annual Coffs Harbour Show.
Now she wants other local people and local businesses to put their shoulders to the wheel so the 2009 show turns into a stunning success.
“You need a lot of manpower to run the event.” Kaye said.
The 2009 Coffs Harbour Show is on May 15 to 17 and Kaye said if every business in town sponsored the event for just $50 it would make an enormous difference to the event. The committee has chosen the theme Old Ways, New Days for 2009.
Mrs Hanson, who is recovering from a major operation on her back, is the new Coffs Harbour Show Society president and is just about to return to her full-time day job with the Office of Industrial Relations.
She and her husband Frank, who recently moved to Coffs Harbour from Armidale to take over the Coffs Harbour Saddlery, have a blended family of eight children between them and Kaye spent years strapping for the children at pony club and polocrosse events as well as acting as the pony club secretary.
The couple have just moved to Coramba where they have horses and cattle and Kaye has acquired her own standard bred.
People interested in supporting the Show can phone secretary Jean Prince on 6652 3559; Kaye on 6652 5775, email coffs
