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...

Hello Readers,Pages from WEB June 2016 Yank News

Second Valley made the most of the SA History Festival in May with the new entrance signage unveiled and the Heritage Trail officially opened by SA Governor His Excellency The Honourable Hieu Van Le. Leonards Mill featured in the festivities with a 19th century themed banquet with patrons dressing the part in period costume with a menu to match.

Welcome to new business ‘Preloved Elegance’ at Main Street, Yankalilla. Check it out next time you’re passing by.

A suggestion for Yankalilla Council, with all the talk about dogs and their owners lately, wouldn’t it be good to have a fenced, ‘off-lead’ area for local and visiting dogs (and their owners) to let off some steam in safety? Not hard to do if someone takes on the idea and runs with it. I could imagine taking the family down to the youth park, putting the kids in one fenced area and the dogs in another.

Everyone’s happy! A tight squeeze again leaves me with little space to say much, so read on for the latest news and to find out what’s happening in our local area this month. Until next issue...

Cheers, Paul Jelfs, Editor
