December - January 2013Hello Readers,
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you. We hope the season treats you and your families well.
Mayor Schlein approached the Yank News recently with ideas to help promote local clubs. We discussed the idea of having a page dedicated to local clubs and groups. The intention is to have all of the contact details listed for the clubs and groups in our district.
The cost of this information being made available would be split between the Yankalilla Council and the Yankalilla Regional News. The clubs and various groups information would be collected at the Council office. If you are in a club or group and you wish to promote the contact details get your information in to the council office and we might be able to do something in the next issue. This is not to be confused with running ads or editorial items, this information is just to provide the contact details of
the club or group. Cape Jervis held their first market recently which saw around 300 people attend in spite of the weather.
Many of the visitors were after fresh fish but unfortunately there was no fish due to issues such as insurance. This should hopefully be rectified for next time. See page 9.
From markets without fish we then had the annual Church Strawberry Fete...with no Strawberries!
Oops, did someone forget something?
The Yankalilla Cruise was held in November and this was once again a huge success, it keeps getting bigger every year. There were estimated to be about 450 cars taking part and the entertainment, food and stalls at the Yankalilla Oval were as good as ever, well done Billy! There will be an official report next issue but we have a few photos on page 41.
Santa will be paying a visit to the Normanville Mitre 10 car park on Christmas Eve, thanks to the Lions Club of Yankalilla. See page 9 for details.
Following Christmas the now famous annual Normanville New Years Eve Pageant is fast approaching. Have you got your float together? Go back to page 3 to see the details. There will be all the usual family fun, food, and of course fireworks at a family friendly time.
Photographers Colin and Gillian Rayment, who have been taking the cover shots for this magazine, will show you how it’s done in a workshop organised by the Natural Resource Centre. See page 32.
One last note, for the first time ever… the production quantity of this issue has hit 6000 copies, thank you for the ongoing support that we have received throughout the district. It is wonderful to know that we are appreciated and provide a much needed community voice. Some of the discussions generated via letters to the editor are not always in line with everyone’s personal view but are always a good indication someone is reading the Yankalilla
