Arcadia, thank you

2016-11-02 06:00

Sir, ON Saturday 29 October, Arcadia Home for the Aged hosted their annual fête at the Greytown Community Hall. It was once again a great success thanks to the wonderful support from our great community.

For allowing us the use of the hall, a huge thank you to Hitler Maharaj and his team. What an excellent, clean facility and venue.

There are a long list of people and institutions to thank for their hard work and support - NG Church ladies organised by Eleanore de Nysschen for baking and selling pancakes. Many thanks to Cathy Nel for again sponsoring the ingredients, St Peters Lutheran Church for the vegetable table and all those assisting with sales, Hermannsburg Lutherans for managing the tea garden and eats. It was very well supported. Methodist Church for the cool drinks table. St Theodore’s Parish for handling the cakes and sweets table. The ladies from the Anglican church that supplied cakes and treats. His Church for organising the children’s games. Special thanks in this regard to Aheer’s, Debbie Cunningham – Avon and Dulcie Jacobsz – Avon. The Hindu community for the delicious curry and rice and the ladies who prepared and sold the breyani.

Cash donations were received from The Assembly of God Fellowship Church, and Mr and Mrs Aheer.
