NEWSLETTER DECEMBER 2017

Dear Ovies, fellow runners and friends

The year-end function has come and gone and what an evening!

Thank you to all who attended and those who assisted with the preparations.  A special thank you to Johan, Elza and Stephanie who helped with the decorations and a big thank you to Leon for all the hard work to get everything in order for the prize giving ceremony and being the MC.   Leon, your Kahoot game had us all smiling and laughing.  Thanks for a great idea!
