Welcome to another local newsletter,
Eudunda is a wonderful place to live, work and play or to visit. We try to give you some of the local news here. There is still so much more news being missed out. You might have a story to tell, seen something worth sharing, want to tell everyone about your organisation or business.
This newsletter could do that for you. Peter Herriman - Editor.

The Eudunda ANZAC Dawn service was a solemn occasion, with Doug Partington playing the lone bagpipes to start the morning service.
People quietly assembled at the Eudunda War Memorial before Dawn ready for the traditional ANZAC Dawn Service. This year there was an opportunity for more to attend than last year during the Pandemic.
In 2020 heavy restrictions were imposed on all gatherings, right around the World as the COVID-19 Pandemic too hold and caused havoc. We might remember how in 2020 a very small gathering of RSL Members were allowed to attend the memorial itself and conduct the service and that the majority of the town and country stood at thier gateway with lighted candles and listening to radio or TV broadcasts to commemorate the service.
Thanks be to God that Australia is so blessed to be in control of the virus and that we are able to live lives relatively normally with only a few precautions. Australia is indeed a lucky country.
It was pleasing to see that attendees signed in with form or QR Code as requested in respect of each other’s safely. Sadly, due to the current outbreaks, interstate, the other change for this year was to not have the traditional march down to the Eudunda RSL Rooms for a cuppa which had always been very popular. Eudunda RSL members did not feel that it would be safe for everyone – as in all pre 2020 years the room had been packed and overflowing out on to the footpath and street.
Despite the changes organizers were thrilled with the good attendance, a mark of respect for those who fell during all wars.
John Stephens, President of the Eudunda RSL welcomed everyone and the service was conducted by Andrew Partington. Hymns were sung, many wreath’s were laid in memory of the fallen by various organisations and personal, leaving the memorial in a splendid display.
After the service everyone went on thier way, with some proceeding much later in the morning to the Robertstown Morning Service.
Supporting drought and bushfire affected communities
On-farm accidents are a major concern
Incidents involve workers and bystanders (including children) and occur in a range of circumstances on a variety of farm and agricultural enterprises.
Learn first aid skills to provide support in an emergency.
Develop skills and improve farm and rural workplace safety by enrolling in the Red Cross Farm First Aid course delivered by an accredited First Aid trainer. Participants are provided with the knowledge and skills to assist themselves, and others, to cope with accidents and injury both from a physical and mental wellbeing perspective.
As part of the course, there is a wellbeing section that is designed to help start the conversation around mental wellbeing and increase awareness of relevant service available for individuals, family and friends.
On completion of the course, participants receive a Statement of Attainment in Provide Basic Emergency Life Support (HLTAID002) – often required for insurance and employment opportunities.
This group didn’t set out to achieve an M2C Milestone, and it would have gone unclaimed if it had not been for them posting online.
“Just finished our first bike packing trip from Murray to Clare. Massive shout out to Pat Quick for organising the overnight stay, dinner and brekky at the Manoora Oval. Definitely what we needed after a few days of banging against the 40km/h wind. Would highly recommend!” Cheers Alain
