Kangaroo Islands five separate Progress Associations met for morning tea and an exchange of ideas at Emu Ridge on Thursday, February 11.

The gathering was the start of a new tradition of bringing the groups together to discuss projects, brainstorm ideas, and propose solutions to issues each association is experiencing.

Penneshaw Progress Association's Sarah Strong-Law said it was a lovely way to touch base, meet new members and share stories.

The progress associations all agreed that the Progress Report Morning Tea shall rotate around every few months to each community.

"American River volunteered to host the next gathering as everyone is keen to experience the new fantastic gallery - American River Tells a Story," Ms Strong-Law said.
