Seems to me there is quite a lot of clothing and shoes coming in for the people who lost their houses in the fires but they need food. Bring what you can to the dance and we will hand it over to the red cross and make sure the right people get it.

See you at the dance!!

Not sure where the forum members were, but you surely missed out. :blink:

The Valentine’s dance was a huge success. :ilikeit:

The venue worked well, the music was great and the people their old fun-loving South-African-selves.

The kids had a great time too!

Thanks to everyone who attended and assisted to make this party fun! :thumbdown:
