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...
