Come along for a fun family day out
The Edinburgh Lions Club sub branch of the Elizabeth Playford Lions Club present the Gumeracha Show and Shine on November 8th. It would make a fun family Sunday out in the Adelaide Hills. The event will be at the oval on the Main street in town. This will be a lovely day out in the Spring sunshine. Just perfect for a drive in the hills and a cheap outing to enjoy.

For lookers there will be other activities beside viewing the cars and guessing which will win the categories. The Lions Club will provide free public health screening for blood pressure and blood sugar. Music and dance displays will be supplied by DJ Peter Panagaris and Adelaide Classic Rock & Roll. There will be stalls with food, and drinks, retro clothing and some vehicle memorabilia. Children's entertainment will also be available. All the proceeds go to charity so support the cause and purchase some lunch.

This is a popular hills event and the weather will be great to get out for a family event. It is only a gold coin donation to enter for lookers. The organisers are anticipating an increase in both vehicle entries and visitor numbers above last years' record attendance.

Funds raised will go toward the Lion's support of project StepAhead Australia, which is the main research body in Australia for spinal cord research.
