BOOK LAUNCH AN OVERWHELMING SUCCESS “AS WE REMEMBER… EDENHOPE & DISTRICT STORIES”

The 2012  Australia Day launch of Yvonne McDonnell’s book at Edenhope was an all out success.  There were no spare seats available with almost 200 people attending,  including many of the district identities that were interviewed by the author. Some attendees came from as far as Perth, Mildura, Melbourne and Adelaide and Yvonne was overwhelmed with support for her wonderful and tireless effort to get this book published.

Speakers on the day included Ron Penrose, Richie Foster, Barry McClure and Loraine Harkness.  Yvonne expressed her heartfelt thanks to all who helped her on this journey  including Christine Bull, design and layout, Norm Robinson, editorial consultant, Allan Sambell, Jan Lampard and Geoff Langsworth, members of Edenhope & District Historical Society.

A fantastic morning  tea supplied by Cheryl’s Coffee Blitz was then enjoyed by everyone, while  Yvonne did some book signing.  Sales of the book have been so successful that a reprint is now necessary.   Funds raised from the sale of books will be managed by the Edenhope & District Historical Society for various projects including the signage of historical sites around Edenhope.
