Show duties for the showgirls

SHOWGIRLS and the 2018 rural ambassador look forward to the privilege of presenting the Murgon Show ribbons.

Visiting all of the cattle, horses and poultry, the 2018 showgirls and rural ambassador will get involved over the weekend with awarding the prizes.

Six junior showgirls, two showgirls and the rural ambassador were showcased two weeks ago at the Murgon cabaret in front of the 130 theatre attendees.

Murgon show president Joan Adams said the night went really well, especially since it had been 11 years since the last cabaret.

We have to try to get these young people in and involved more and this is one of the best ways to do so, Mrs Adams said.

Miss Belinda Hiron was announced the 2018 Rural Ambassador and the 2018 Miss showgirl winner was Miss Donna Robinson.

The Junior Miss Showgirl winner for 2018 was Miss Teagan Hall.

It's good to have them come back and get involved in the show events, Mrs Adams said.

The winners will also represent Murgon at the Sub Chamber Finals held by the Nanango Show Society, on June 16.

Murgon show also expects a special visit from the Cherbourg people who will be painting whilst the show is on.

"It's good to see them come in and paint where people can see it,” Mrs Adams said.

The show society is excited to celebrate different cultures and the different people in the region at this year's Murgon show, she said.
