A Message from the Mingenew Midwest Expo Chair
As we wind down 2020 I would like to take the opportunity to provide an update of the goings on here at
the Mingenew Midwest Expo.
What a year 2020 has turned out to be, and with less than a month remaining I am sure I am not alone in hoping that it will pass quietly as we set our sights on a more normal 2021.
COVID has thrown up many challenges to our communities this past 12 months, not least the cancelling of the Spring Field Day season here in Mingenew as well as our friends in Dowerin and Newdegate.
Thankfully the agricultural industry has been largely untouched, with a solid harvest being recorded in many grain growing areas of the state, record livestock prices driven largely by eastern states restocking resulting in great optimism for the seasons ahead. With this optimism we look forward to agriculture helping to drive our communities out of our COVID slumber and back to a degree of normal in 2021 and beyond.
The year away however has allowed our staff here at Expo to work on many of our backroom processes that should help make our future a brighter one.
It is with a touch of sadness however that we say goodbye to Taryn and Kait, who have both moved on to new employment opportunities in the Mingenew community.
We thank them for their service and wish them all the best in their current and future endeavours.
We do however welcome back Rikki Smith to the Mingenew Midwest Expo office in the role of Finance and Administration Officer. Rikki has returned to Mingenew with her family after a couple of years away and will provide a familiar face and voice over the telephone, a great understanding of our organisation and the great enthusiasm that she brings to the office each day.
We are currently on the lookout for a new Event Manager, a role that will be filled early in the New Year to commence work on Expo 2021.
In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Rikki for any enquiries, together with the board we will endeavour to answer your queries as we plan Expo 2021.
For those making plans for the coming year, I would like to reassure you that we are planning for a normal Mingenew Midwest Expo on August 11th & 12th 2021 and look forward to reacquainting ourselves with your business in the coming months.
Whilst the 2020 cancellation was disappointing, we know our volunteers are recharged and greatly looking forward to getting back to greeting you all here in Mingenew in August, as we kick off the Spring Field Day tour of WA.
On behalf of the staff, volunteers and board here in Mingenew, can I take this opportunity to wish you and your families a safe and prosperous festive season and look forward to catching up in the New Year.
