Potjie Competition Mount Moreland Conservancy September 2012
To all that supported our Heritage Day Potjie Competition a very big THANK YOU, for
without you and your friends and family we would not be looking back today and thinking what great
fun it was.
Unfortunately I was ill the Sunday night before with a stomach bug, which meant I did not have the
energy to do what needed to be done on the day, such as thank you speeches and the like, however
sometimes its better to leave the speeches for weddings and 21st, don't you agree!!! Suffice it to say,
bar a few hitches, it was a very successful day and alot of fun for all who participated.
The point of having the Potjie competition this year was first and foremost to get the community of
Mount Moreland together again and to meet and greet all who live in this special village. Secondly, it
was to raise funds for the Mount Moreland Conservancy who take care of the Gazebo, parks environs and
the 2 swallow viewing sites. Many outsiders joined in the festivities and complimented us on a very
special day. I hope all who live in Mount Moreland are aware of just how unique and special it
is......... (I for one am aware and Mount Moreland Constantly).
A Big Thank You to all for a fun filled day
