This Day in History: 1940-10-05

The Toodyay Agricultural Society decided not to hold its usual agricultural show due to the seasonal conditions and the war. Instead the Society combined forces with the Toodyay Horticultural Society and held an exhibition (hall display) and gymkhana. A similar show was also held the following year, fund-raising for Patriotic Funds.
