Yass Valley Good Deeds During Lockdown


The following are positive posts from the Yass Notice Board Facebook site, and highlight just some of the wonderful people in our area:

• Annemarie Doyle’s Street Library is still in operation with Annemarie posting pictures of the available donated books and asking people to make arrangements with her for safe delivery or pickup.

• The Gunning Arts Festival invites residents of the Upper Lachlan Shire community to submit photo stories of our region to celebrate the diversity and beauty of where we all live. A photo story or “SnapWrite” consists of a photo you have taken locally, accompanied by a few sentences about that photo. Your photos can be of places, people, memories or themes that encapsulate the essence of living in our local region. A selection of SnapWrites will be chosen by the festival committee to be featured on the festival website as part of the 2021 Gunning Arts Festival. Photos can be taken with any device or camera.

• Leslee Williams put out a call on Facebook on behalf of her 93-year-old mother, who was seeking details about a long-lost cousin in Yass. The community jumped on board immediately and within a day the cousin was located living in another town, prompting this response from Leslee, “Thank you so, so much to all you lovely people of the Yass area. We have found her and are so excited. Take care of yourselves.”

There were also multiple posts from small businesses across the area, reminding people that they are still open and that alternate delivery methods are available. Let’s get behind them folks!
