Events that took place since our last newsletter was:
The Longest Breakfast Table
The Highlight of the Rustenburg charity calendar. I visited the event for the first time since i got to Rustenburg. What a awesome experience did i have while taking the video and photos of the event. People from all walks of life came together to have breakfast for a good cause. From businesses sending their staff to pastors and their church family enjoying the morning. I had my hands full trying to get the “BIG picture” of the event.
Table going on and on and on for meters and meters. You will definitely get good exercise walking around this table. The food that Food Worx prepared looked mouth watering and everyone was entertained by musicians and dancers from I-dance studio. I recommend that next year you must put this event on your calendar.
Events that are still coming up are the following:

INFORMATION PERTAINING TO CLUB 80’S
Captain Elsabé Augoustides
Commander: Corporate Communication Services
The Elderly Care Fund’s main purpose is to deliver a holistic service to all retired employees (60 years and older) of the SAPS and to prepare current serving members for retirement.
Retired former NW Provincial Commissioner, Maj Genl Solly Moloi is actively participating in all the activities of the ECF and is very proud of the fact that there are presently 5 (five) members of “Club 80” in and around Rustenburg.
Recently, ms Echaboth Somphekwa, known as Lizzy, had the privilege of joining this “exclusive” Club, when she became 80 years old. Her husband, mr Nthakeng Somphekwa has also been a member of “Club 80’s” since 2005. The elderly all joined in the fun at Tlhabane House. A present from the ECF in Pretoria was handed over to ms Somphekwa by Rev B M Mokoma. Ref R H (Hezekiël) Khetsi , a retired Police chaplain, and the current chairperson of the ECF in Rustenburg, welcomed everyone to the joyous occasion.
A lovely cake (sporting 80 candles!) was baked for the birthday lady. The Somphekwa couple are from Rhenosterkraal, Magong, Mogwase.
