August 2017 newsletter - Capensis meaning ‘’Of the Cape’’. Reg. No. 032-657-NPO
“ If it’s not fun, why do it? ” “Nisi ludibrium, cur agamus?”
Dear Capensis Members
I want to express my thanks for your vote of confidence to elect me as your chairlady. We are looking forward to a most stimulating and interesting year ahead.
Unfortunately, I have to offer my apologies for my absence at the Capensis meeting on Women’s Day the 9th of August as I am by participating in a Ladies Bowls Day at Veldrif. This day was arranged a few moons ago before I knew that I would be elected to join the Capensis committee.
However, I look forward to our next outing to Plankies Baai and hope with you for good rains before that day.
The success of Capensis is totally dependent on the support of its members and while we have 72 paid up members, we need the attendance of our members at our monthly meetings at the Presbyterian church hall. The truth of the matter is that, if we do not have at least 35 members attending, we cannot pay the rental for that hall and have to use some of our “savings” to cover the cost. So, if you can at all attend, please do so. Thank you! Sometimes you may know all about the presentation, but do attend for the social interaction with our fellow members, it is good for the soul. We all share the same fears, joy and apprehensions not to mention our age related medical indisposition!
Last but not least.
This letter is also an open invitation to you, a valued member, to write or contact me if you have new ideas for the committee to consider regarding guest speakers, interesting outings or any input on how you think your committee could improve our club activities to make it more fun….
Aan ons Afrikaans sprekende lede, waarby ek myself insluit, wil ek net baie dankie se vir jul tegemoetkomendheid om te aanvaar dat ons kommunikasie in Engels is aangesien die oorgrote meerderheid van ons lede Engelssprekend is.
Kind Regards en Groete van huis tot huis
