June 2017


Hello Readers,Pages from WEB June 2017 Yank News
There is lots of stuff happening as usual and I have run out of room, so some articles, reports and letters had to be put aside for next issue.
When the budget won’t stretch another four pages - yes, it must be in multiples of four - I am not inclined to be financially reckless. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to run on an never ending deficit… like the government does… hmmm?
Planning for the ‘Heritage Fleurieu Coast’ Festival for 2018 is underway and there is a
public meeting for interested people to attend - see page 26 for details.
The Yankalilla Council have been busy demolishing toilet blocks, among other things and their ‘In The Loop’ section (in the middle) will explain all the finer details.
What else… there’s a new ‘hearing services’ business (back page) among other new ads, Lilla’s Café has a new owner and is now open Wednesdays too, Yankalilla Take Away will
serve their 10,000th customer this month and plenty of club news, entertainment and other things to do. Read on!
Until next issue...

May 2017


Hello Readers,May 2017 Yank News
I hope you enjoyed the many happenings of April including Easter, school holidays and the Festival Fleurieu - continuing as I write this and get to press - and Anzac Day - Lest We Forget!
It certainly has been busy around the area and many businesses mentioned a good increase in customer traffic.
So, here we are in May and best wishes to all the Mothers out there for Mothers Day on Sunday 14th.
May is also South Australian History Festival month and there are events and exhibits happening across the state including a bunch of things in our local area. Following the History Festival, the Heritage Fleurieu Coast will be organising the inaugural 2018 event starting with a public meeting. This will run on the alternate years to the Festival Fleurieu. All the ‘historical items’ are on page 10 and 11.
It is about this time of year that I check the advert prices are holding up - well actually it was last month but I didn’t get to it - so there is some minor price adjustments effective from June issue. Some popular sizes I left the same.
Another stunning cover shot from Gillian and the local grave stones photo was sent in by Sharon Campbell to use for history month. Thanks Sharon.
Until next issue...
