Hello Readers,Yankalilla regional News January/February 2014
I hope that you enjoyed the Christmas and New Year festivities. No doubt there were a few hangovers out there but as long as you enjoyed yourselves!
If you follow the YRN facebook page you will already know that Annie Nixon no longer helps me with the production of this magazine. After 10 years of being a part of this publication we have had to call the business relationship over - reluctantly I might add - and from this issue I am solely responsible for the whole thing! I will miss Annie’s input but as they say, all good things must come to an end. Thanks for everything Annie.
The Normanville NYE Pageant was again a major success for the area, drawing thousands of spectators and participants. It was a pity the CFS cancelled the fireworks but those who felt the need headed over to Victor Harbor to catch their fireworks display.
What else is happening? Wirrina has new owners and things are set to change for the better. Alan & Jane celebrated their 3rd birthday at Leonards Mill during December, well done! The Loop section has had a revamp.
To squeeze everything in this issue I had to leave out the puzzles (sorry Brian S. - I know you look forward to the circle a word but they will be back next time).
Also, some of you may have a colour advert instead of your usual black & white - it’s just the way it worked out when I squeezed it all in - consider it a new year bonus!
Until next issue...

December - January 2014

Hello Readers,yndecjan14Merry Christmas and a very safe and happy New Year to you all.
Santa will be coming to the Normanville Mitre 10 car park for the annual Christmas Eve show thanks to the Lions Club of Yankalilla and various sponsors.
Something to take the kids to for a nice family outing and perhaps to assist in wearing the little ones out a bit.
It’s that time of year again when we wash the cow dung out of the trusty trailer or ute get dressed up in silly costumes, and get in to gear for the Normanville
New Years Eve Pageant! Or you could take it easy and just watch everyone else do it. Our famous little yearly event attracts thousands of people to Normanville for NYE and this year will no different, so don’t miss it.
We had a late item from Kangaroo Island which there just wasn’t room for, but we will mention that the KI Field Day 2014 is well underway with the event slated
as a tribute to The Family Farmer. the committee is keen to hear from potential exhibitors from the island and mainland. It is 30 years since the first Kangaroo
Island Field Day was held and you can find out more at www.kifieldday.com.au.
Until next issue...
Paul Jelfs & Annie Nixon
