News from Arcadia

2015-07-22 06:01

WITH winter now in full swing and the ever present load shedding and now also water shedding, Arcadia is happily surviving all of this.

Thanks to the generous support of Bracken Timbers, Greytown Mountain Bike Club and the sale of the old yellow minibus, Arcadia now has its own water supply. This is truly a blessing as a poor water supply would be a real threat to the home.

On the Arcadia calendar: 30 July: GADCCA annual general meeting at the Senior Service Centre, York Street Greytown at 6pm.

1 August: 3pm: The Arcadia fun-walk for and with Arcadia residents starting at Arcadia. Everyone is welcome to participate. Please contact Lyn Fouche at Arcadia for entry arrangements. Entry is three toiletry items.

15 August: Annual lucky draw evening at Arcadia. This is a special event with exciting prizes to be won. A notice­ has been sent out and those who have not yet responded must please do so by deadline 31 July. Anyone who has not yet received the notice, but who like to participate, is welcome to contact Lyn at Arcadia.

More exciting news is that the Dalton Farm Yard Theatre group will be presenting a “Blast from the Past” variety­ show at the Dalton Hall. These shows will take place on four evenings and the first show will be on Friday on 4 September in aid of Arcadia. The R150 ticket includes a meal, supplied by Arcadia. Tickets will be available at Arcadia and from various people and businesses.

Finally, once again our sincere thanks to individuals and businesses in the community for their ongoing support of Arcadia.
