Social Evening – 24 February

Railton Foundation Swellendam hosted the first social event for 2017 for the community of Swellendam on Friday, 24 February 2017 at the VRT Pitt Primary School Hall. The community looked forward to the evening’s proceedings with excitement and, as usual, was not disappointed. Last Friday’s function was attended by more than 519 people including infants, youth and adults.

The performances of the evening were excellent, as usual, coordinated by the team and items on the program were listened to by SAM artists as well as youth from the local community. The people were pleasantly surprised with happy treats like eating evidence, buying evidence, backpacks filled with essential articles, and so on. The prizes are sponsored monthly by our local businesses and institutions such as Wimpy, Swellengrebel Hotel, Pizza World, Woodpecker, Field & Fork Restaurant, PNA, Monkens Coffee Shop, African Bank and G & D Training, Entheos Boxing Academy and Rain Africa.

We are convinced that this program can only reach higher heights with the type of support we regularly enjoy and invite community members who are interested in delivering an item to these features to contact us at 062 101 7812 or 060 621 3629 . Anyone who wants to develop themselves as an artist can also join Tuesdays and Thursdays at 15h15 at our Arts & Culture Development Project at the Thusong Center.

The next social evening will be held on Friday, 24 March 2017.
