Hello Readers,May 2018 Yank News
The SA History Festival and our own Heritage Fleurieu Coast Festival are on throughout this month. Locally, there are many events to get involved in. If you need more information, the Visitor Information Centre has the details and programs and will sell you event tickets and more!
In keeping with the historical theme, there is the account of the robbery of the Commercial Bank of SA’s Yankalilla branch from the Yankalilla Historical Society. The YHS will also be holding four historical talks in conjunction with the Yankalilla Library for the festival.
We do like to have our opinion on local matters of importance in the Yankalilla District. Your letters to the editor this month had to be spread over three pages! You can probably guess there will be some about ‘dog bylaws’ and unhappy ratepayers, of course… there also might be a few interesting revelations! I don’t want to spoil your fun so best read them yourself.
There are also some related items in the DCY’s In The Loop section, which is again double its usual number of pages. Keep up with the Council’s agenda and have a read, especially if you are a ratepayer.
Lastly, the YRN has been printed by Mercury Printing Services for the last 25 years! See page 7 for a brief history, sourced from my historical records. Aptly coinciding with the history festival.
Until next issue...
