Grafton drivers trucking ahead for 40th anniversary

THE Grafton Truck Drivers Social Club has been going strong since 1977 and therefore this year will be the 40th Grafton Truck Show.

Club president Adrienne Dentler said: "the club was very happy to receive funding from Clarence Valley Council's Community Initiatives Program at the end of 2016."

"The funds will be used to help pay for the annual parade at the Grafton Truck Show on June 10, 2017, and this year will be a big one," Adrienne said.

"The day will include the usual free kids' activities and judging with some exciting changes including entertainment by country music legend Adam Eckersley."

For information about the Grafton Truck Drivers Social Club, please contact Adrienne Dentler via email graftontruckclub@gmail.com or phone 0407 815 026.

Any not-for-profit organisations or individuals wanting more information on funding opportunities through the Community Initiatives Program are welcome to contact the community projects officer by email sammy.lovejoy@clarence.nsw.gov.au or phone 6642 0957.

The next funding round opens February 13, 2017 for projects/initiatives from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018.
