Arcadia fête, thank you

2015-11-04 06:00

Sir, ON Saturday 31 October there was a hive of activity in the town hall as Arcadia Home for the Aged hosted its annual fête.

There was fruit and vegetables, cool drinks, cakes, tea and pancakes galore and handmade toys and jewellery and clothes to fit young and old.

The "White Elephant" table was very popular once again. For the hungry there was breyani prepared by the Assembly of God Fellowship.

A big thank you to a wonderful community for their support on the day and donations received before and after. Thank you also to the Umvoti Municipality for the use of the town hall and Aheer's for its very generous donation.

A special thanks to these churches for their contributions - NG Church, St Peters Lutheran Church, Methodist Church, St James Anglican Church, Hermansburg Lutheran Church and the Assembly of God Fellowship. God bless.

Finally a big thank you to the staff of Arcadia for all the hard work they did to make sure the day was a success.
