End of year function: 2012

By Penny Evans

The end of year function was held on 17th November 2012 at the NG Kerk, Ontdekkerskruin, Discovery. This was a very special function organized by Petro Meyer and Lynette Swanepoel. Members paid a small sum towards this meal and also brought salads.
The tables were set with new tablecloths and Christmas overlays. There were menus on the tables, showing the three course meal. The starter was tuna mousse with crispy French bread. Main course was BBQ ribs, chicken drums, meat balls, green salad, rice salad, coleslaw, curry bean salad, potato salad, watermelon salad and homemade mini bread. Desert followed which was chocolate mousse baskets and apple tart with cream.

Lynette’s daughter and her friend acted as waitresses.

Lucas' gift of attendance.
During the function full attendance awards were given to Lucas Rinken, Richard Wolfaardt and Robyn Templeton.

Frans Viljoen and twin brother.
A fun item followed-photos of members as a young child were projected onto the screen. Each group at a table had a chance to identify the person in the photo. Those with the most correct answers received prizes of ‘gold’ medals made of chocolate. Losers received Christmas crackers.

Each member had been asked to bring a R20 gift. Each gift had to have a photo of the giver. These photos will be placed into a scrapbook album. It is hoped that members will assist with the scrapbooking. Numbers were placed on the Christmas tree and each member received a gift according to the number he had drawn.

The clearing up and washing of the dishes followed.

Donna Viljoen, Giel Nel and Graham Southey.
The ideas, making of the tablecloths, buying extra crockery, bringing additional cutlery, organizing and co-ordinating the menu, awards, power point presentation of the photos and all the additional features were due to the efforts of Petro and Lynette. This function required a great deal of preparation and hard work. We would like to extend a very big thank you to these two enthusiastic committee members for this wonderful surprise. We all really enjoyed ourselves.
  •  We were distressed as we were leaving, to discover that Herman and Anna Esterhuizen’s vehicle had been stolen from the car park within the church grounds. Exactly when this happened was not clear. However, the gates had been closed during the function. This was very upsetting for everyone.
