The Sabie MOTH’s will be holding their ever-popular Quiz Night in October, Arthur Knoessen, Old Bill, told GPS News.
“This last year (July 2016 to June 2017) was my first year as Old Bill (Chairman) of Jock Shellhole, of which I have been a member for 18 years. We were able to assist The Sabie Retirement Village with some financial support, interesting due to Jock Shellhole being a member of the Sabie Retirement Village. This year we were able to do repairs to the Shellhole Building, mainly by painting the outside, thanks to the paint being donated by Wim’s Transport Hire. Some brick paving is in progress around the building, thanks to the rubble obtained from the Van Heerden’s Pharmacy upgrade. The ‘afdak’ and braai area was built a few years back thanks to the Otto-family when the poles and zinc were handed over after their home improvements. We had our alarm system repaired after a lightning strike, thanks to William Looke and his team of security,” Knoessen said.
“We have been busy fund raising by means of Quiz Nights at the Sabie Country club. The next Quiz Night is due on Friday, October 6th, 6 pm for 6:30 pm. Hopefully, the local rivalry between Woodlands, Summer Hill, and Sybrand School will continue. The pros of Probus and the Sabie Retirement Village will be there to challenge the Quiz master. Other upcoming events are the Potjie Competition in White River and the Sabie Country Club Moth Golf Day.” Knoessen said.
“Jock has 10 members, so recruitment is always ongoing. Come and see what it’s all about. Our meetings are half an hour, once a month, where-after we have a social bring and braai and by 9 pm we close up,” Knoessen concluded.
