THE Eastern Province Round Table has seen its youngest ever chairman take office.

Former Nico Malan learner, Wayne Stevenson (30) from Humansdorp, is the youngest person to take over the helm at the Eastern Province Round Table for 2016/ 2017. He is also the first member from the Jeffreys Bay/ Humansdorp 252 Round Table to do so in the 30 years since their inauguration in 1986.

Being the youngest is not new to him. He joined the Jeffreys Bay/ Humansdorp Round Table in 2006, and was soon inducted as their Chairman for three years in a row, before joining the Eastern Province Council.

Being in the forefront of changing lives, Stevenson is honoured to take on the role and he is already working on plans to enrich the world around him.

“Fun, Family and Friendship - this is what Round Table stands for, and it is exactly this what I want to strive for this year. Tablers do not get paid for what they do - it is an inner passion and desire to help others, while having fun with projects with the help of your family and establish lifelong friendships,” says Stevenson who works as a Sales Executive at Algoa Nissan in Humansdorp.

“As Chairman of the Eastern Province, I would like to spread the word of what Round Table means, what we stand for and our passion towards our community and people, and to give hope to those in need of it.”

He would furthermore strive towards growing membership numbers.

Projects for the Kouga region include their annual Boere Rally, a Golf Day, a “Skuur” Dance, Winter Knights and Bandanna Day.

Stevenson’s vision is to live out their motto: Adopt, Adapt and Improve. “This is exactly what Round Table does for you as an individual. It takes you out of your comfort zone, broadens your perspective and teaches you valuable life lessons. One such lesson is that individuals standing toge-ther can make a difference, no matter who or where you are.”

According to Stevenson, he will conti-nue to be a member of Round Table until he is 40 - the age at which you retire out of Round Table.

“I cannot fathom myself not being part of this wonderful organisation and the warm feeling you get when you help someone in need or help make someone’s dream come true, whether it is a school project, a wheelchair or food hampers.”

. Round Table is a non-political, non-racial association of young men between the ages of 18 and 40, embracing representatives of nearly every profession and occupation. Its objectives are the encouragement of high ethical standards, the promotion of social interaction and fellowship among young professional and business men, as well as the quickening of individual interest in everything affecting the pu-blic welfare.

There are currently 17 Round Tables in the Eastern Cape with a total of 108 members.
