Hello Readers,September 2016 Yankalilla Regional News
We can almost say goodbye to winter as the days get longer and before we know it, it will be
Christmas again (scream in joy/horror now if you must).
Fast approaching of course is the 2016 Yankalilla Show on 1st October. This event on the long weekend as usual will mark the start of the buildup to the ‘busy period’ for our district.
Also in the not too distant future is the New Years Eve Pageant and there will be a public meeting (see page 10) to get things organised and muster the volunteers. Get along and get involved!
Festival Fleurieu is gaining momentum for the 2017 event and a new local history festival is now in the making for 2018. It is to be every 2 years in the years between the Festival Fleurieu. Details on these are also in this issue.
Oh, and the letters section does not contain the slightest whiff of dog poo so breathe easy!
Until next issue...
Cheers,

Hello Readers,August 2016 Yank News
Winter is still with us and we have had some severe weather over the last month. Hopefully you all survived with minimal damage.
The 2016 Yankalilla Show is getting closer - 1st October - and the Show Committee is hard at work. There is a car boot sale on September 11th to help raise some funds. Support your local Show and grab a bargain. Have you thought about your exhibits yet? Now is the time! Show and car boot sale details are on page 6.
Festival Fleurieu 2017 is well into the organisational stage. Are you artistic? Do you have some old chairs to make use of? See page 5 for your invitation to get involved.
The ‘letters’ section has gone to the dogs again this month. Those who feel ‘entitled’ and that Council by-laws don’t apply to them should probably take note of public opinion, as expressed by dog owners and non-dog owners alike.
Yankalilla Council’s ‘In The Loop’ section is full of updates including free wifi at Normanville, new entrance signs installed at local townships, business plans and budgets and a bunch of activities to take part in. Also some words of wisdom from our Mayor.
Until next issue...
Cheers,
