COMMUNITY spirit was at a peak in Leeton as eager entrants for the February "Cars for Kids Show and Shine" arrived.
The crowd was vibrant and ready to have fun while raising money for the Leeton chapter of the Royal Far West.
A spectacular display of vintage cars, motorbikes, and trucks as well as some modern-day beauties sparkled and shined amid the smiling faces so obviously awestruck by such a collection.
Committed volunteers bustled about without time to stop. Leeton Rotary Central and the Rotary Club of Leeton furiously cooked their tantalising barbecue, while kids bounced on the jumping castle and then hopped aboard the Lions train for a tour around town.
SunRice ambassador Katelyn Mills and her committee worked together to ensure everyone could relax with a range of food, music, and activities in a lovely local setting.
Shire mayor Tony Reneker was delighted to present beautifully-etched glass trophies to an impressive range of winners, as he remarked at how proud he was to belong to such an outstanding community.
Another amazing event was held at the Leeton Museum and Art Gallery.
