The community is invited to then go along to the Wudinna Arts Group exhibition opening night of 'I Saw A Bunyip...', on Friday June 21 at the Wudinna Hall from 6pm.

Enjoy complimentary tapas and wine tasting while enjoying work from accomplished and beginner artists.

A reminder to those entering, to have their artwork delivered and ready to hang at the hall on Tuesday, June 18 from 10am to 2pm.

The Minnipa community then welcomes all to a picnic at Pildappa Rock on Sunday, June 23.

A lunch of $20 sliders and grazing table and $5 single sliders for kids, along with hot and cold drinks for sale will be available.

This event, which is being coordinated by the Minnipa Progress Association, runs from noon to 5pm and requires a RSVP to the Minnipa Progress Association Facebook event, or contact the Minnipa Community Store or Roanne on 0429 426 148 for booking details.

You can enjoy the live music podcast and a show featuring special guest musicians from Eyre Peninsula, from 9pm to 11.30pm.

Thanks to local community groups working with our economic and community development officer Craig Midgley, along with the financial support from the federal government's Drought Communities Program for their efforts in organising a varied program of events.

Works are progressing well on the projects funded through the drought program across our district.

We have 19 projects underway along with seven events, including some mentioned above.

We looking forward to the completion reports from participants as the program comes to a close.

It has certainly generated local business activity, which was the aim of the program.
