Farewell Yarren

A united cry of “Yarren” rang out from the centre of Moonta Oval as loved ones of Yarren Graham released green and blue balloons in his memory on Friday, March 13. Yarren tragically drowned whilst snorkelling in his home town of Port Hughes a fortnight earlier, aged 7.


“GREEN and blue were his favourite colours, so my friends organised the balloons and we decided to count one, two, three, and shout Yarren’s name as they were let go,” Yarren’s mother Rebecca Walker said.
