Mrs Parker ran the boarding house, fed travellers on the trains whilst they were stopped in Yaninee and was the midwife to many grateful mothers and babies.
In July the Institute was lucky enough to receive a grant of $5000 from SA Power Network Community Grant for the project “Keep the milk cold and the water hot”, which was a much needed kitchen appliance upgrade for the Institute’s Supper Room.

Thank you SA Power Networks!
Over the last week of August Ceduna Stone Mason Barry Vaughn and his apprentice Cody could be found working on the stone dado around the Institute.
During the January school holidays someone conducted a malicious attack on the building’s foundation by randomly pulling off parts of the dado’s render. This then exposed the foundation stones to the elements. They also threw large pieces of the render onto the new supper room roof. Unfortunately the render was unable to be patched and instead the dado was cleaned up and re-pointed.
In what seemed like a blink of an eye the job was done and the building has never looked better!
Many thanks to Barry and Cody for their outstanding work.
Thank you to Peter Smart (their son) and family for permission to publish this.
When rewiring of the Yaninee Institute’s supper room we discovered that speaker wire was powering the Main Hall lights and those wires ran hot. To avoid a flaming disaster it was decided to rewire the Main Hall’s electrics as well.
Many thanks to The Eyre Peninsula Community Fund and to the Yaninee Sports Club for their contributions towards funding. Special thanks to Brett Unsworth from Livewire Solar and Electrical Systems in Kimba for completing the job. Brett gets a five star review from us for his excellent and reasonably priced effort as now, the Yaninee Institute will be safely glowing for our community for another 100 years.
Welcome to the Yaninee Institute website where we will document the Institute’s move to a new trusteeship and a more secure future.
