Most would be aware construction is currently taking place of four major Town Entrance Statements located on the side of State Roads near the town entrances. This project is being undertaken by members of the Kapunda & Light Tourism Association and funded by that Association's fundraising efforts along with contributions from many generous sponsors and is supported by Light Regional Council. It should also be noted a number of Kapunda High School Students, local tradesmen and other volunteers have made (and continue to make) a major contribution to this project. I am informed by project manager Chez Gue, all four structures along with the lighting and surrounds could be completed by the end of November this year.
I am sure most would agree, the stone wall, wrought iron arch and chimney structures are relevant and compliment "Map The Miner" located on southern entrance to Kapunda, Australia's oldest mining town and its mining history.
I would take this opportunity also to commend and sincerely thank all those involved in this amazing project which clearly demonstrates the spirit of the town is very much alive. If you agree with this it would be appreciated if you could spread this positive message among all your friends.....Mayor Bill
Just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you very sincerely for your complete and consistent support that you showed for the SRBA "Fun Run". When Jo and I felt so like giving in it was great to know that we had you onside and you helped tremendously in getting us over the hurdles and through the hoops! Your interest in and commitment to the whole concept combining your interests in fitness and the indigenous community was so evident and especially in seeing you happily join in the walk. What a great role model, leading by example and supporting a new event in your council area.
I know Jo will be sending a formal letter but I really wanted to express my thanks and also apologise for not having more time to do so personally back at Whistler. I was really pretty flat out and totally exhausted at the end of the day. But it was all worth it and, as Jo will tell you, we made approx $5000 and had 100 adults and 55 chn walking + a few dogs and horses! What a great spectacle and one I was really proud to be a part of as both an SRBA member and Whistler owner.
Again many, many thanks...and here's hoping we can do it all again next year!

Northern Region Enterprise Day 25th July 2013 Roseworthy College
Members of Parliament Distinguished Guests Ladies and Gentlemen, good morning all.
I would like to begin by acknowledging the Ngadjuri people as the traditional owners of the lands where we come together today. I pay respect to their Elders both past and present and to their culture - the oldest living culture on earth.
It is indeed an honour to be asked to open the 3rd Northern Regional Enterprise Day and I commend the University of Adelaide Roseworthy Campus in organising and coordinating this event for secondary students from the upper northern region of Adelaide. Light Regional Council is very pleased to support and sponsor this occasion.
Today is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of business practice, marketing and financial management and to open students minds to consider becoming an entrepreneur by exploring new concepts and ideas. I would also take this opportunity to acknowledge today’s guest presenters who have given freely of their time to share stories and how they have gone about achieving their success. You will all have the opportunity to interact with these inspiring Entrepreneurs who include:
