Casino Truck Show success bolsters community organisations

 

THE record-breaking success of the 2023 North Coast Petroleum Casino Truck Show will flow onto important community organisations.

More than 600 trucks and 14,000 people filled the streets of Casino on Saturday 5 August, and as a recognition of the event’s success, Casino TruckShow will make three charitable donations.

As the official charity partner, the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service will receive a $5000 donation. In addition, the Casino Truck Show will donate $2500 to Jumbunna Community Preschool and Early Intervention Centre and $2500 to the Casino Community Kitchen.

Casino Truck Show Organising Committee coordinator Darren Goodwin said the trucking industry was a massive champion of regional communities and was proud its support of the Casino Truck Show could further assist the local area.

“These organisations are integral parts of the local community, and we are proud to give these much-needed funds so they can continue their vital work,” Mr Goodwin said.

Richmond Valley Council’s Events officers Kendra Lynch and Tiarn Stenner, Manager Community Connection Sharon Davidson and Mayor Robert Mustow present Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service Major Gifts and Donations Manager Zeke Huish with a cheque from the Casino TruckShow for $5000.

Richmond Valley Council Mayor Robert Mustow said the goodwill generated from the Casino Truck Show was immeasurable and was pleased it continued to flow through to the community.

“The day brought an estimated $1.7 million in business to our area, and I am proud we are also able to contribute to the continued operation and well-being of these local organisations,” Cr Mustow said.

“We can’t wait for next year’s event and continue on the legacy of what is now the biggest truck show in the southern hemisphere.”

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter provides emergency aeromedical services to 1.5 million people across Northern NSW, with experienced crews on call 24/7 as a vital link in the NSW emergency care chain.

Jumbunna Community Preschool and Early Intervention Centre started as a small community preschool and has grown into a centre providing a range of services for local children and families. It is the specialised early childhood intervention service for the majority of the Richmond Valley and Kyogle local government areas.

The Casino Community Kitchen is volunteer-run and opens every Friday at the old Casino Bowling Club site to provide takeaway meals and soups to those in need.

RESUMPTION OF SITTINGS AT CASINO COURT HOUSE WELCOME NEWS

RESUMPTION OF SITTINGS AT CASINO COURT HOUSE WELCOME NEWS

 

The resumption of sittings at Casino Court House tomorrow after it was closed following the 2022 floods is welcome news for the local community according to Clarence Nationals MP, Richie Williamson who advocated very strongly for the Court House to reopen as a matter of priority.

Mr Williamson delivered a Private Member’s Statement in the NSW Parliament in May last year followed by a letter to the NSW Attorney General, Michael Daley supporting a Mayoral Minute from Richmond Valley Mayor, Robert Mustow seeking urgent priority to be given to expediting flood recovery works at the Court House given the impacts on the local community and economy.

“Whilst the number one priority of flood recovery should always be about supporting flood victims, restoring key community assets should be a high priority,” Mr Williamson said.

“As I said at the time, the closure of the Casino Court House was having a negative impact on the local community and economy with the nearest sittings being heard at Kyogle and Lismore and disadvantaging many in the community.

“Its closure impacted on low socio-economic and high Indigenous communities, some of whom have very limited transport and were struggling to attend because public transport is almost non-existent.

“It was also impacting family members needed at court as support people as well as having an operational impact on our local police force because local police officers were required to travel to Kyogle or Lismore for appearances and court hearings.

“Economic impacts on Casino were also being felt because of the lack of court days, which would normally bring to the community a high number of professional people to the community, where they would quite often stay for the night.

“I thank the NSW Attorney General for his assistance in ensuring the Casino Court House is back up and running.

“It is a great shot of confidence for the community and is part of the healing and recovery process that is so important for my community,” Mr Williamson concluded.

Casino Beef Week 2024 Feature

Welcome to the 2024 edition of The Casino Food Co-Op Casino Beef Week, a celebration that not only showcases the best of Australian beef but also unites the community of Casino, known as the Beef Capital of Australia. As we embark on our 42nd year, we continue to cherish the tradition that has become a cornerstone of our identity and an annual
highlight for both locals and visitors.
This year, Casino Beef Week, running from May 18th to 26th, promises an array of events designed to entertain, educate, and celebrate our rich agricultural heritage. From our Cattle Competitions, Industry Events, and community fun, we have something for everyone. Our program is packed with over 100 events including industry seminars, art exhibitions, live music, and, of course, our massive Beef Week Saturday featuring the Brenda Armfield Street Parade.
At the heart of Beef Week is our commitment to the agricultural community. We celebrate the hard work and dedication of our farmers, who play a crucial role in our region’s economy and way of life. This festival is an opportunity for them to showcase their top-quality produce, share their expertise, and engage with the public about the importance of sustainable farming.
We are also excited to introduce new events this year focusing on our community. Sunday the 19th is a day of Country Music and Mullets at Casino RSM Club, and Monday night is our brand-new Steaks and Mates Dinner at the Clydesdale Steakhouse with a focus on Men’s Mental Health. This is in addition to brand new classes on our Wednesday and Saturday Cattle Shows, which will now include Heifer Classes with our Led Steers.
I would like to extend a special thanks to all our sponsors, volunteers, and community members who have contributed tirelessly to make this event possible. Your enthusiasm and support reflect the spirit of cooperation and community that Casino Beef Week exemplifies.
Join us in celebrating the pride and spirit of Casino at The Casino Food Co-op Casino Beef Week 2024. We look forward to welcoming you to our town and sharing with you the vibrancy and warmth of our community. Let’s make this year’s Beef Week the best one yet!

Crazy Cow comes to Casino

 

By Samantha Elley

If Kristy Gill had her way, she would cook 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“I used to advertise on Facebook and made cakes for my friends and family,” she said.

From there, Kristy opened the Riverview Café in Coraki but when the opportunity came up for her to move her business to Casino, she took it.

And Crazy Cow Café was born.

“I figured it was a good name to suit the beef capital,” she laughed.

After a lot of hard work to get the business up and running, Kristy opened her doors on Tuesday last week.

“We do lots of take home meals for people who don’t have time to cook, so they can take them home and put them in the freezer,” Kristy said.

“We do honey chicken, fried rice, home made lasagne, spaghetti bolognese and sausages and veges.”

The café also serves up hamburgers, chicken wraps, salad sandwiches and all the deep fried favourites.

“We will eventually do pizzas as well,” said Kristy.

“We will be looking into gluten free cooking with our cakes and slices and we have lactose free milk for our coffees.

“We try and cater for everyone.”

With her five youngest kids in Casino Public School, only a walk away, Kristy knows she will have no problems with young helpers in the shop after school.

“My five year old has already asked if he can come and help,” she laughed.

“I hope he continues with that same attitude as he gets older.”

The Crazy Cow Café is located at 117 Barker Street, next to the Commonwealth Bank.
