Trail celebration one for whole community

As the Elliston District Council gears up for the November general elections, we are also looking forward to celebrating the culmination of years of work on the three most important projects undertaken by the council across the last four years, and even longer.

On Saturday, September 15, council will be hosting a community celebration of the Elliston Coastal Trail.

Kicking off at 12.30 pm at Town Beach, with Peter Goers as MC, a free barbecue and afternoon performance by Joshy Willow will follow some formalities.

We have a jam-packed afternoon and evening planned to thank and celebrates all those who made the coastal trail such an important feature in Elliston.

The full schedule of the day’s events will be released shortly, but I can tell you that Joshy is playing two sets in the afternoon.

In the evening, there will be performance of the Country Arts SA touring show ‘Orchid and the Crow’; an award-winning one-man show by Daniel Tobias.

The show is about a Daniel, a Jewish-atheist who found God in Lance Armstrong after being diagnosed with stage-four testicular cancer.

At this stage, we are hopeful of having some other special guests performing as well.

Those artists are dependent on funding and the council is doing what it can to ensure their attendance and make the day a real celebration for the entire community.

On October 4, Telstra are hosting a community luncheon, with special guest Rowan Ramsey MP, to launch the Elliston mobile base station, which is a significant partnership between the Federal Government and Telstra.

It starts at 12pm at Town Beach.

And finally, a little traffic warning.

If you are travelling down for our functions and are thinking of using the Mount Wedge to Kyancutta Road, note that there will be roadworks for three months starting mid to late September.

This is the final 5.2 kilometres on the Elliston side of the border.

It is all happening in Elliston.
