Free bush dance at Meeniyan

MEENIYAN will host a free bush dance for members of the farming community and the broader community this Saturday night, July 2.
Backed by the South Gippsland Shire, the UDV and GippsDairy, the event has been organised by Middle Tarwin sharefarmers Esther and Jonathan Hofman.
Esther, a 24 year old farmer and local nurse, told The Star “it would be great to have a night with a positive vibe rather than all the negative news and feeling that has been in the community since dairy announcements in April.”
“Bush dances are always fun and holding the event in the legendairy capital of Gippsland, Meeniyan, was an easy choice,” Mrs Hofman said.
“The night has been organised as a night away from the farm for the whole family, to dance, chat and enjoy some community fellowship.”
The event will run from 6.30 to 10pm at the Meeniyan town hall with supper provided by the Meeniyan Red Cross. The venue caters to BYO and tea/coffee as well as moo milks for the children will be available.
Popular local folk band ‘Beggs2Differ’ will be performing on the night. South Gippsland shire has donated funds to the event as well projector and screen equipment for a children’s movie. There are free raffle as well with a total prize value over $3500.
“I hope many farmers will take the time out to attend this sponsored event and remember that we are all in this together,” Mrs Hofman said.
See the advertisement on page 40 of this week’s Star for all the details.
