EDUCATION CENTRE
Thanks to John Herring, we now have a new brochure rack in the Education Centre, for a more effective display of the various information brochures available for the public to read. We have had two schools visiting the Education Centre recently: Hermes School from Atlantis, the Mamre Primary School and Tygerhof Primary School.
   
PLAY EVENING
Our fund-raising Gala Play Evening has come and gone, and a most pleasant evening it was too. It was good to meet friends and chat over a warming glass of sherry and some snacks and then to be entertained by the two plays on offer. Friends of Rietvlei made a profit of approximately R1 000 from the evening. Thanks to all those who supported us by buying tickets for themselves and family members and also to those who sold tickets to family and friends.
This newsletter comes to you with the kind assistance of Caltex.
