PE Pearls Ladies Circle No. 19 ended an amazing 2020/21 Circle Year with a very special AGM and Induction Dinner on Saturday 10th April 2021. Our Madam Master of Ceremonies, Sonel Lindeque, and her husband past ARTSA President, Johan Lindeque, opened up their house to us for the evening.
Our AGM started at 18:00, after a quick cup of coffee, and proved to be a swift, but productive meeting. We reflected on the past year and the challenges that we overcame due to Covid-19, looking at how we adapted and heeded the fact that we still managed to Be the Change. Together, as friends and Circlers, we Changed the World while having fun!
PE Pearls LC19 Induction Dinner began shortly after our meeting with Sonel welcoming all guests and lighting of the friendship candle, the reading of the Aims & Objectives of our Circle was followed by Grace before tucking into a light shrimp cocktail starter.
Proceedings continued with various toasts, after which we enjoyed beef lasagne and salad made with ingredients from our hosts own garden. This was subsequently followed by the induction of our Incoming Chairlady and the presentation of gifts and awards, including Stirrer of the Year, Chantal Myburgh and PE Pearls LC19 Circler of the Year, Cindy Tutton.
After mini caramel tarts for dessert, we abandoned our high heels for bare feet, set up the disco lights, pumped up the music and then…. we danced.
“There’s just something so amazing about being a Circler that is hard to describe to others. Yes, you give so much of your free time, but the rewards are endless! I’ve now completed my 16th year and have a lifetime of memories already.” Sonel Lindeque, Immediate Past Chairlady.
