Millicent AH & P Show President, Jim Garner, acknowledged the valuable sponsors who continue to support the show and commented on the works completed over the last year, which included extending the cattle yards to cater for the  steady growth of entries which now have grown to more than 80 annually. He also spoke of the extensive program of entertainment offered over the course of the Show. He concluded by thanking the guests for their hard work in preparing for the Show, but echoed the need for more volunteers to lighten the load of the devoted few who work so hard every year.
Vice-President, Edwin Lea then presented the Young Rural Ambassadors to the guests. The first of these was Kayla Marks, the Senior Rural Ambassador for Millicent this year. Kayla is 22 and has been involved with the Show  most of her life, entering many of the indoor sections as she grew up, while preparing for her working career as a fashion designer with her own label.
Rachel Smith 17 yo  is the Junior Young Rural Ambassador, has competed and judged various horse classes, at both Millicent and Adelaide Shows. Rachel also showed steers at Adelaide Show. She  has been a  volunteer at Banksia House, and has won Community Service Awards. She  has attended Kangaroo Inn Area School.
At this point the President  presented the girls with their sashes, Certificates, and flowers, to the applause of an enthusiastic audience.
The guests enjoyed a tasty 3 course meal, and took part in the raffle, with many and varied prizes being won.
