for the festival program.”
One such return-event is the extremely popu-
lar Fresh Fish Lunch at Port Franklin.
What better way to appreciate the bounty of
Corner Inlet than to lunch on fish pie made
from locally caught fresh fish?
Organised by Port Franklin Hall Committee, in
conjunction with Yooralla, this luncheon always
sells out quickly, so contact Janne McPhie on 5686
