Friends of Young Farmers Social Dinner 

Thank you to everyone who attended the Annual Friends of Young Farmers’ Social Dinner on Friday 1 June 2018 and helped make the evening so wonderful.

The dinner was held at the Croydon Hotel and we had a record turn out with more than 60 people enjoying the delicious food and great company.

We also had a chance to chat about The Annual Sheep and Wool Show which will be held in Bendigo between 18 – 21 July 2018.

Thanks again to everyone for attending and we look forward to seeing you all in Bendigo next month to support our Young Farmers!

New members are always welcome. Please contact Di Lacey or Tegan Martin in Community Relations for further information or to register your interest.
