Riverland Field Days:
17 & 18 September 2008

The Riverland ME/CFS Support Group participated in the Riverland Field Days on 17 & 18 September 2008.

Here is a report from members Raelene & Simon Jackson:

Riverland Field Days: 17 & 18 September 2008

The Riverland ME/CFS support group was given a big hand with financial support to attend the 2008 Riverland Field Days.

Held each year at a permanent site just out of Barmera (230kms east of Adelaide) it is one of the larger country agriculture shows in the state.

It is an agricultural and horticultural expo and is broadly based with many exhibits of interest to the whole community.

Each year all sorts of exhibitors flock to the site for two days to promote their business, be it cars, tractors, trucks or harvesters.

However these are but a few that attend, all sorts are found at the show from allied health, to rain water tanks, food stalls to colleges, crafts, home improvements, personal care and financial institutions and of course it is fully catered.

Our financial sponsor who wishes to remain anonymous saved us a few hundred dollars in site fees for an under cover site in the permanent pavilion.

We decided on the permanent pavilion because there is always one of the two days that it either rains or is very windy. So a big thank you to our sponsors as it has helped to get the word out about ME/CFS.

Even though we weren’t overly busy the response was positive as was the feedback.

We were approached by Carers S.A. on the Thursday and asked if they could take some of our pamphlets back to their site, they also wanted us to keep them informed as to our meetings and any other relevant info. Along the way we picked up a couple of new group members.

The idea for the Field Days came from David Shepherd from the Northern Yorke Peninsula & Clare Valley ME/CFS Support Groups.

We would like to thank, Cheryl Martin, Liz and Corrado Angeletti for helping us on the two days so we could have a bit of a look around the Field Days.

Also thanks to the Society and Lorenzo Pizza for organising to make available the Society banner. Thank you one and all.
