November 2017


Hello Readers,November 2016 Yank News
Still cold, still wet, still windy and summer is still coming... soon we hope.
Exciting things this month include the Shannons Yankalilla Cruise (page 11) brought to you by Yankalilla Rotary Club and featuring a whole weekend of entertainment as well as the actual cruise. It gets bigger every year and this time should be no different.
Congratulations to Yankalilla table tennis who picked up their 8th Premiership - in a row! Some happy and excited people on the cover shows they had fun doing it.
There is a few rumours floating around about the old Court House building at Normanville. There is plans lodged for development of the site which will go through it’s usual procedures. It would be a great loss for Normanville if something happened to this local icon and those interested in preserving it may want to check with Yankalilla Council to find out what is planned. There are a couple of letters in this issue on the subject.
Next issue is the December to mid-January issue (the big one with Christmas etc) so get your stuff in early for this one to make sure.
This issue is packed full to the point I had to leave out both Rox Rosey’s writings and the Historical Society’s article on our local history. They will be in next issue. Likewise, the ADFAS program for 2017 which commences in February. Plenty of time.
Until next issue...

October 2016

Hello Readers,October 2016 Yankalilla Regional News
October is here! The Yankalilla Show, long weekend, sunshine (or not) and a sudden change of pace as we realise summer is on the way.
Certainly the level of activity has increased a few notches since last month.
There was even a jump in the number submissions to the good ol’ Yank News, which is back up to 40 pages this time and likely to
increase further in the Christmas lead up. A good reason to submit your stuff as early as possible to avoid the rush around the deadline date.
The Yankalilla Council have been a bit creative and have totally re-vamped their ‘In The Loop” section. It’s still in the middle as usual and feel free to provide feedback to the Council on their efforts.
The Yankalilla Community Children's Centre are raising funds and are holding a quiz night. Get your table together for a fun night with a good cause. See page 11.
It has been a few years since the area had a Laundromat but now we do again! Not only that, but there is a dog wash too. Kaye Fox has expanded her Yankalilla Car Wash to include these new facilities. There are some details on page 32.
Plenty for history enthusiasts to get involved in this month. The Yankalilla Museum is seeking old photos of Normanville and the Heritage Fleurieu Coast Festival is getting organised. See page 16-17 and there is also the regular dose of local history from the Historical Society.
Other updates in this issue include the Festival Fleurieu 2017, Sealand Theatre, Books & Words Group, Yankalilla Area School and many more.
As usual there is a bunch of activities and entertainment from Club Fleurieu and the Normanville Natural Resource Centre.
That should keep everyone busy for a while.
Some trivia... The Yankalilla Regional News turned 46 years old in September... roll on 50!
Until next issue...
