Swellendam Ladies Circle No 22’s 6th birthday coincided with the council meeting weekend on 10th November. After the meeting we had a birthday celebration with the children from Cooper Street. We had a jumping castle, did a boerewors braai, and also had some birthday cake. We want to thank our sister Circles Shiraz Ladies Circle No 8 and Garden Route Ladies circle No 20 for their enthusiasm and big donations in the form of clothes and bites and treats for take home packs for the 20 children.
The wind was a challenge on this hot day, but luckily we had helpers to keep the jumping castle and gazebos in place. Caesar, the resident dog at Cooper Street Kids, also made sure that he gets his piece of attention (and cake) by falling asleep in awkward places.
