5 NOVEMBER 2011
In 2010 het Krugersdorpers en omliggende gemeenskappe die geboorte van die La’t Wiel Fees gesien. Die fees was die droom van ‘n paar mense, wat ‘n geleentheid wou skep om geld in te samel vir Laerskool Ebenhaeser. Die fondse is aangewend vir die beveiliging van die skool, asook ander projekte wat die skool het, onder andere die voedselskema. Terselfdertyd wou hul ook ‘n geleentheid skep vir die gemeenskap om te sosialiseer en om ‘n bietjie pret te hê. Daarom hoop ons as feeskomitee om die La’t Wiel Fees ‘n jaarlikse instelling te maak, om dit van krag tot krag te laat groei. Die 2010 La’t Wiel Fees was ‘n groot sukses, maar die 2011 fees belowe om nog groter te wees. Hierdie jaar se fees sluit die volgende in:
· Verskeie kunstenaars
· Mini mallemeule
· Mini vlooimark
· Eg Afrikaanse disse
· Pretdraf 4km & 6 km
· Motor en motorfietsskou
Moenie die 2011 La’t Wiel Fees op 5 November misloop nie – dit beloof om ‘n onvergeetlike gebeurtenis te wees!
CENTENARY GOODWILL RUN
Since last year I played with the idea to start an event where old car enthusiasts can be involved in giving something back to the community.
At the beginning of this year my wife Bollie Pienaar and myself discussed it with our Chairman Mr Evert Louw. This thought became a reality after meeting with the management of the President Hyper in Krugersdorp and it was decided that the Centenary Car Club hold an event called the “Goodwill Run” at their premises, where anyone and everyone could offer blankets and/or unspoiled food items, and in turn we would donate this to a worthy cause. We decided that this run would also include a motor show so that everybody in the community would get an opportunity to view some classic vehicles, some dating back to 1928.
The “Centenary Goodwill Run” was born on the 10th of July 2011. For a first time ever event like this, the club had an excellent turnout and we believe it will be a huge success every year. Everyone enjoyed the day tremendously, and everybody spoke well about the success of the event. Although we had anticipated a turnout of 100 old cars, we were amazed that the actual number was 203.
We believe that everyone who attended the “Centenary Goodwill Run” on Sunday will definitely join us again next year and we look forward to adding to the number of old cars at next year’s event.
