We are about to call an end to another year with the arrival of summer, Christmas holidays and New Year celebrations.
The Lions Club are holding the Christmas Eve Kids Party in the Normanville Mitre 10 carpark, starting around 6pm with Santa arriving at 7pm. See page 9.
There is Christmas Carols at Yankalilla (page 4) and Second Valley (page 3) and a bunch of markets to pick up some local wares.
The Normanville New Years Eve Pageant will hit the streets again this year for the 21st time! Details are on page 15 and if you haven't got your float organised, now is the time.
More news from Festival Fleurieu is on pages 16-17 with new ways you can get involved in this local event scheduled for April 2019.
During November we paid our respects and marked the 100 year anniversary of Armistice Day. Second Valley certainly put on a memorable event for this special day as you can see on page 13. Lest we forget.
SA Dog Rescue is looking for your donation to their Christmas Wish List (page 7) and you can leave your present under the Christmas tree at Yankalilla Trading Store.
If you are an online reader of the YRN, I will be working on a better presentation and easier reading experience for the digital platform.
2019 is looking like a busy and fun year on the Fleurieu. Get out there and enjoy it.
Until next issue...
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas
& Happy New Year.

First up this month, the Council Elections close on Friday 9th November. You should have received your ballot paper in the post by now so fill it in and put it in the reply paid envelope to have your say. More on that and other Council news is ‘In The Loop’ as usual - in the centre spread.
Well done to all those involved with putting on the 2018 Yankalilla Show, which was very much a winner. The AGM is coming up (see page 32) and if you want to be involved in the next one, that’s a good opportunity. Or maybe have a think about your entry, exhibit or stall for 2019.
The Wirrina Bluegrass Festival is on mid-month (see page 12) and it is hoped by moving it from September to November there will be better weather and bigger crowds. And of course, more music!
We are getting close to the end of another year and the next issue will be the one to wrap it up.
As usual, it will run through to mid-January 2019 with a circulation increase up to 7000 to cater for the annual influx of visitors. With that in mind, get your items and adverts in as early as you can to avoid the inevitable bottleneck around the 15 November deadline.
Until next issue...
