Anlaby Feature in Westfield/Woolmark Promo for Wool Week (13-21 May)

It is great to see one of our local tourism icons, Anlaby, located between Eudunda and Kapunda feature as the location for such a significant promotion as Westfield collaborated with The Woolmark Company to support local retailers, showing wool in a curated selection of winter accessories, boots, denim and apparel.The campaign launched in line with Wool Week Australia (May 13 – 21). 

Anlaby, Historic and beautifully restored was the ideal location; and significantly placed in the story of Wool, as one of Australia's oldest Merino Studs for the fashion shoots and video production for Westfield's 'High Winter Campaign' shoot.

You may have seen part of the promotion with a story in last Saturday's Advertiser and also in the Lift-out.

Visit Anlaby's website for a link to the Woolmark article and also see a great video called
"Winter starts with wool" featuring international fashion model Stephanie Field (Australian). While you are there, check out their new products, which have just been uploaded to the website this week.

Youth Parliament Training Weekend For Samuel

Samuel Doering, from Neales Flat, was recently involved in the Youth Parliament Training Weekend at the University of South Australia West Terrace Campus. Beginning with the event launch on the 5th of May, the weekend finished on the 7th.

Youth Parliament is an initiative that allows youth to learn about parliamentary debate, the parliamentary process, bill writing, public speaking and debating.

The Youth Parliament Launch was an opportunity for parliamentary dignitaries, local leaders and enthusiastic participants to meet up and begin the journey. Tony Piccolo MP gave an address encouraging youth to get involved wherever they could, take up opportunities and become a leader in their community.

Throughout the following two days, participants learnt about how the South Australian Parliament works, the subtle parliamentary etiquette and how to speak and debate in both houses. Sam said, “The highlight of the whole training weekend was being able to meet people, gain an insight into the Parliamentary System and gain confidence in public speaking and debating.” In addition to this, Sam put himself up for election to a leadership position and he was elected to become Leader, or Deputy Leader of the Opposition in the Upper House.
His group, who will develop and argue a bill together, will be debating whether it will be a viable option to establish a nuclear powerplant in South Australia. “Our aim is to investigate and debate whether establishing a nuclear power plant will increase jobs, power stability and open up the option for a nuclear waste dump as well – but we need to do some research before we know the full particulars.”
Overall, Samuel found the experience “is a great experience to gain confidence and go through some personal development. It was really quite empowering and inspirational!”

In July, the participants will be sitting in parliament for a whole week as part of the 22nd Youth Parliament.

Massive Global Ransomware Attack, Patch Your Electronic Devices Now.

Ransomware has been around for quite some time, but it made National and International News over the previous week.

What is Ransomware? Very basically - If a banner appears on the screen with a demand that you send a text message to a specified phone number, or phone a support number, it means that your computer is infected with ransom malware. Such malware are created to block access to a computer or restrict access to some functions and request a ransom to restore computer functionality.

If you own electronic devices (and who does not) you should investigate if they have the latest Operating System patches, and if not, you should take steps to update your system(s) ASAP.
This latest publicized attack has been aimed at Windows Computers
Please note that patches have also come out for Apple Devices - read a Web South post on this here. Web South suggest keeping all devices updated.

One point to note is that Microsoft no longer gives updates to Windows XP and Vista operating systems. If you access the internet with a computer and these operating systems you are very much at risk. 

Peter Herriman of Web South,
"Do not let them access your computer, disconnect from the internet immediately. Ask a trusted company to help you, one you have dealt with before or at least someone local that you can trust. 

"We would like to help you to stay safe, and be happy with your computing needs,
So please feel free to check out our web post on the ransomware issue"

Bower Comes To Life With Community Church!

On Sunday afternoon, 12 March 2017, the small rural township of Bower in the mid-north of South Australia came to life with a community church service. Approximately 70 people from the community and relatives and friends of past members came together to hear God’s word, pray and praise God for his blessings. The inspiring service was well led by Pastor Chris Georg who is a descendant of the Doecke family from the Bower area. The congregation had closed 4 years ago, but the church is still open and available for special services.

Everyone gathered after the service in the Bower Community Hall nearby for a delicious afternoon tea provided by the Bower Progress Association, and to enjoy the friendly fellowship.

Organiser, Mel Zerner outlined plans to hold an annual community service at the church and to gradually repair and upgrade the church, cemeteries and Sunday school rooms over the next few years. Families who have assisted in this work come from the Zander, Dreckow, Doecke, Kassulke, Kleinig, and Freund original residents as well as Tim Thornhill from the local Bower community.

Praise be to God for a wonderful opportunity to provide ministry and fellowship to the local and wider community as well as preserving a historical building that is a land mark of the Bower township.

Thanks to Mel Zerner for the great roundup and photos.

Manoora to Eudunda Walkers Finish At Bakery

Between the 3rd and 8th April this year a group of 18 walkers in a group known as the 4 Seasons embarked on an adventure on part of the lavender Federation Walking Trail from Manoora to Eudunda.

Under the leadership of Brian Croft they took the walk in stages,
"We planned to take things in a fairly leisurely fashion ensuring that all members have time to smell the flowers.

"As some of the group had special needs for camping and the group like to camp together we found that the Kapunda Tourist Park suited our needs. Brad and Emma have always been very considerate in accommodating our group during a number of past visits and we highly recommend it as a great spot to stay."

"Overall we enjoyed the trail and there are some great views. Most felt that the section from Inspiration Point through to Peppermint Springs and Webb Gap and beyond was a highlight.

The group finished off at the Eudunda Bakery for a coffee and cake and a quick chat before heading off to go home, which for most is in the Adelaide region.

"We would like to say a big 'Thank You' to all the land owners and to the SARTI group's trail builders for their work. Our group has walked previous sections of the Lavender Trail and we are already looking forward to walking the next section from Manoora once it is completed."

Eudunda Show AGM Report

The Eudunda and District A&H Society would sincerely like to thank those who made the effort to attend the AGM on the 31st of March, and extend a special welcome to the new members. It was wonderful to see a number of new faces.

A big thank you must also go to Paul Schutz, the outgoing president, for all the hard work he has put into the show, and to Richard Schulz, the ingoing president, for taking on the role. The final thank you must go to Tony Branford, the secretary, and Helen Schiller, the treasurer, for their ongoing commitment. Without these hard working people, the show would not be possible.

This year, the show committee is planning another fun-filled day, with the theme being “Yester-year”. The chosen theme will put a spotlight on the things of old, with a special display being arranged in the foyer of the show hall and much more to see on the day, including an array of exhibits in the show hall. These exhibits are carefully set out and displayed by wonderful volunteers whose effort is greatly appreciated and although these volunteers do a marvellous job, more help is required. This is why we encourage anyone in the community who is interested to come along and lend a hand in the lead up to the big day, especially in the large flowers and pot plants section.

Again, thank you to those who attended the AGM and if you wish to get in contact with us, please do – details in the website footer.

Thank you to Emily Doering for the report
