Continuing on with the theme of Volunteers.  Well done to all volunteers and thank you to all who took time out of their busy days to come celebrate at the Free ECBAT Afternoon tea. Here is a snap of some of those attending.

ECBAT News #7.

News we hope you can use. Like Southern Goyder News from ECBAT #7 - 02/10/15 on Facebook

This newsletter is another quick 'Blast Out', 
One of the issues as a volunteer is having 'time' and it is the case at the moment. I have had to have head down & bum up working as the new 'Editor' for the 'Eudunda Show Program' (Book) to try get that published as soon as possible. It's looking very nice with lots of exciting things this year.

This edition is more about finding the fantastic 'Open Gardens' events this weekend. Hopefully back to normal in a couple weeks time.

Are you aware of the Eudunda Brand? Developed by ECBAT to help people identify the products and services of the Eudunda region. It can be used as a powerful associative tool. It can be used by local businesses and organisations.
COULD YOU USE IT? Just inquire with ECBAT - easy!.

October Long Weekend - Drive Careful - hot weather!!!

Please Drive Careful & Prepare for the hot weather. Because it is going to be a fairly hot weekend, don't forget to take spare water for you and your pets. Hopefully I don't sound like a drama queen (Its not going to be that hot in comparison to the real summer - but that is often when you get caught out.
It's also a good opportunity to check the car for oil, water and tyre pressure too so you have a good trip. 
We wish everyone a great weekend.
