Hello Readers,

Yankalilla regional News June 2013It is certainly starting to get a bit cold and wet of late, hopefully you are all rugged up by the fire. First of all, we have another batch of Leafy Sea Dragon Festival reviews and reports over the next few pages. It seemed to all go extremely well and was embraced by the local community and well attended by visitors to the area as well. In a couple of years we can look forward to doing it all again!

For those of us who are looking for the next thing to do, in June there is always the Sea & Vines Festival at McLaren Vale. See page 6 for details on that one.

Other coming events include the Books & Words Group on page 11, the Yankalilla & District Over 50’s Club on page 25 and the Natural Resource Centre on page 35.

There are also a variety of Council supported functions, educational programs and activities in which to get involved in for young, old, business people and everyone in between. See The Loop section - in the centre spread where it likes to hang out - for more on these and other news from Yankalilla Council.

Until next issue...Sonic Bomb Gig List June 2013
