The plea from the Stawell Agricultural Society this week for more volunteers shouldn't fall on deaf ears.
The prospect of Stawell being without a spring show in a few years is a real possibility if people don't come forward to take the baton from existing members or those who haven't been replaced.
The society which raises the funds for the show through the monthly Farmers Market, currently sits at half capacity, 15 of the 30 members required to operate comfortably.
As one of the committee members said, "I have been doing it for so many years, I enjoy doing it, I just need a break".
From this it is fair to ask the question, do people still want a local show?
The animal nursery, the home made food, arts and crafts, rides that come together in one place every year to showcase what is unique about the local country area.
As with everything, events need to evolve and this is no exception, the call for new members should be looked on as an opportunity to take the event forward and may be even in a new direction.
Stawell is in a position where it is still lucky enough to have an annual event that is so community driven and spirited.
If people want the Stawell Show to continue as an annual event, they should think seriously about becoming involved.
