Echuca Racecourse - Letter to the Editor
1 July 2015
Riverine Herald, Echuca
The revitalisation of the racecourse pavilion and function space is a really exciting project and a positive story for Echuca Moama.
I commend the CEO Alex Doble, past Chair Dr John Quayle, current Chair Troy and his committee for their vision.
The Echuca Racing Club contributed $237,656, while Racing Victoria and Country Racing Victoria contributed $140,000.
The Victorian Liberal-Nationals Coalition in government was pleased to contribute dollar for dollar funding with a commitment of $377,000.
The new facility is a major boost to the racing club, the tourism and wedding industries, and to the Echuca Moama community in general.
A classic example of the community working hand in hand with a government who understood what makes country communities tick.
