The Yackandandah Community Development Company – now has more than 600 local shareholders, has built its own petrol station, has branched into the hardware and rural supplies business and ploughs its profits, after paying expenses, wages and dividends, back into community projects.
Name a Yackandandah outfit, from the bush nursing hospital to the popular folk festival, sports clubs, community choir, scouts and tourism efforts – and you’re likely to find a YCDCo contribution.
