Buy a sausage and help
Steve and Marj Payton arrived in Lismore on Show Day 1976. A year later Steve was co-ordinating the barbecue for the Rotary Club of Lismore at the show, a role he continued right up until 2007. He'll be back again this year, but he won't be putting in the 13 hour days he used to do as the co-ordinator.
This year, the Rotary's barbecue at the show will raise money so the children's ward at Lismore Base Hospital can buy a nitrous-oxide distributor.
“They've always wanted one for minor procedures that don't require an anaesthetic,” Lorraine Ryan said. “Hopefully we can make at least $4000 so they can get one.”
So if you feel like a steak sandwich or a pig in a blanket and you want to support the kids at the hospital, you know where to go.
