Subject: A Message from Mayor Doug Barden – Celebrating 45 Years of Freds Pass Show!

Dear Litchfield Community,

As we reflect on the vibrant history of the Freds Pass Show, it brings me great pleasure to announce the upcoming 45th Anniversary celebration on the 25th and 26th of May 2024. It’s an incredible milestone that speaks volumes about the enduring spirit and unity of our community.

The Freds Pass Show has become a cherished tradition, and I want to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to Shirley, the dedicated organising team, and the countless volunteers who tirelessly work behind the scenes. No sooner is one show completed, they are already laying the groundwork for the next. Their unwavering commitment and tireless efforts are simply beyond praise.

The Freds Pass Show is more than just an event; it’s a testament to the strength and camaraderie of our community. Over two days of festivities, from the 25th to the 26th of May 2024, we will come together to celebrate our achievements, showcase our talents, and revel in the joy of being part of something truly special.

This event is not just for the community; it is of the community and by the community.On behalf of the Litchfield Council and the entire community, I extend my heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you who contributes to making the Freds Pass Show a resounding success year after year.

So mark your calendars, gather your friends and family, and join us for a weekend filled with laughter, entertainment, and the shared pride of 45 years of Freds Pass Show. Together, let’s make this anniversary celebration a memorable milestone in the history of our beloved community.

With gratitude,
Mayor Doug Barden
