Something like a Social Like was formed   in 2017 and the name was a result of members being unsure what direction they wanted to take their social club or what they should really call it. The name stuck and two years later it still stands. It isn’t necessarily a burial society, but members assist each other with braai packs when a member has lost a loved one. They also assist with alcohol when a member has a special occasion.
