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,

July 2016

 

Hello Readers,July 2016 Yank News
The middle of winter is sort of here, the new financial year is certainly here and that means a bunch of paperwork and getting your tax done! Oh well, so much for relaxing in the quiet time.
We have also come to the long awaited double-D election, thankfully that is probably over now too by the time you read this. All things must pass - as they say.
This issue included updates on the Festival Fleurieu 2017, Historical Society, Ladies and Mens Probus Clubs, Club Fleurieu, Books and Words Group and Sealand Theatre Inc just to name few.
Dog poo has become a topic for conversation in the letters section... absolutely riveting stuff! Personally I think the topic of saving roses last month had a better aroma.
The Yankalilla Netball Club and the newly formed Yankalilla Men’s Shed have both picked up some useful grant money to help with various improvements. Details are also in this issue.
The Yankalilla Show is not far away - the October long-weekend - and the committee are having a bit of a membership drive. Get involved and support your local show! See page 11 for more. If you are thinking of submitting entries now is also the time to start planning them too.
Until next issue...
Cheers,
