Dear SYA Supporter,

Welcome to the third edition of the SYAConnect E-newsletter!

In this issue, we have our rundown of the leadership camp as well as a participant's experience, Official photos and an interesting change of management with the construction of 4 new management teams, each focusing on different areas of SYA.

We also have articles on our very own website, which won a major international award! Karan's final leg of Kokoda, with pictures and a recount of everyday of his adventure, a rundown of the 2010 Blood drive held at Austral Gurdwara, who did so well that the Red Cross had to in fact turn away blood doners, closing shop! A marvelous effort.
