ANNUAL DINNER - Oct 15th - WR Baptist Church

 

Once again we look forward to sharing with you all that was accomplished in Zimbabwe from December to April. We want to share with you our challenges and victories. Harry, Frank and I came back exhausted but fulfilled in the knowledge that we were able to accomplish all that we set out to do. To God be the Glory. Many thanks to all who prayed for us I truly believe we accomplish all we do because you pray. Dr Markham and wife Alison who is a board member hope to be with us and share all that the medical team were able to accomplish as we worked together for the good of the country and people.

It would be most helpful to me if you could book a table of 8 and ask your friends to join you for a great evening of good food, shared stories with pictures and shared friendships. Not to mention door prizes, Wine board and great auction items. The gecko sales table will also be available and also some fantastic table cloths to be purchased. We also hope to have some surprise entertainment. There is a maximum of 25 tables that can be booked and to date we have not filled them all in any given year. Let us make a great effort this year to fill the room. Please book your tables now. When you book your table please let me know of food allergies for you and your guests.

The evening will consist of :

- A Home Cooked African Dinner

- LOTS OF DOOR PRIZES  -   WINE BOARD -  GIFT BASKET DRAWS - ART -  GECKO TABLE, featuring wire ornaments created by the children of Zimbabwe.

- A presentation by Susan Janetti

Any one wishing to donate a bottle of wine for the wine board (not home made) please contact Susan.

There will be of course, an opportunity to donate to the Zimbabwe Gecko Society. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to our projects in Zimbabwe.

So, please join us for a fun evening and help us with this worthy cause. We look forward to seeing you there!
