MUST READ: Women honoured on Secretary’s Day

Charmaine Marais, Nettie Ferreira, Louise Burger, Anneen Le Roux, Alicia Thotharam and Arvashni Sumair were the lucky draw winners.

Oppie Plaas Lapa near Utrecht hosted a successful Secretary’s Day celebration this year.

Women from Newcastle and Utrecht arrived in their numbers.

Proceedings got underway with a demonstration by Karen Griffiths, showing female guests how to make different breads from a single recipe.

A selection of homemade breads were also offered with lunch.

Anneen le Roux gave a presentation of encouragement to the women, inspiring them to make enough time for themselves and breathe again.

“We all owe it to ourselves as women, secretaries, wives and mothers.”

The group of women also indulged in rock painting to help spread kindness to the community and sow peace in their own gardens.

Thereafter, a series of lucky draw competitions took place.

The women and Oppie Plaas Lapa thanked its sponsors for generosity in donating prizes for the draws and for the various presentations and activities.

“Thank you to all the women who joined us for this very successful event, and for the bosses who gave the women this opportunity to have a well-deserved afternoon off to enjoy themselves.”
