LEETON shire will be on show this weekend for visitors from near and far.
The Leeton Apex 40 Club will host the organisation's 2019 RORT, where members from Apex 40 gather for a weekend.
Known as an annual convention or The RORT, is where the organisation holds an annual general meeting is held, but mostly it's a chance to get together, catch up and explore the location of the event.
The idea of Apex 40 came about when members decided to form sub-committees, which are generally based around past or present Apex Club locations. It is made up of people who were all once members or partners of members of Apex clubs.
Leeton will play host to around 130 visitors from all over Australia, as well as New Zealand and New Caledonia from Friday through until Sunday.
Mark Carter is the secretary of the Leeton Apex 40 Club, which has members from Narrandera, Darlington Point, Leeton and even Forbes.
Planning for this weekend's event has been happening for two years, according to Mr Carter's wife Joanne.
"(At the end of the three days in Leeton) a contingent of 47 will then board a coach for a five-day tour of the Riverina," she said.
"It certainly will be an eye-opener for some of our visitors and such a great way to show off our region, while enjoying the local attractions and of course the country hospitality.
"We hope the influx of visitors to accommodation, coffee shops and small businesses will benefit our town."
The Leeton club is always looking for past Apex members to join its ranks.
It is purely a social organisation that meets a few times a year.
