On 23 and 24 Aug 2012 the
women at SAS WINGFIELD celebrated women’s month in
style. The theme for this year was “women of the world”.
This year SAS WINGFIELD’s women celebrated their
femininity with all women around the world, whether you
are a housewife, a Supreme Court judge or a women
working in the rice fields in China, SAS WINGFIELD women
honoured them all.
Getting Down Mrs Rossouw showing the young ladies how
she used to do it during her days.
The day started with a prayer
from the Padre and a welcome by the XO, and then table
by table women were encouraged to write songs, poems,
and perform dances of different women around the world.
This part of the day was so inspirational, women
dancing, laughing and singing together.
All roads then lead to the
Auction Center for a dance treat, young and old lined up
on high heels and flat shoes to learn Line Dancing.
After a few steps dancing to the Line Dance beat the
mood was electrifying, hips swinging and stepping all in
the name of fun.
After a delicious brunch all
the ladies started with scrapbook photo frame making.
Even though the women were all dressed up, they did not
mind working with paint glue and different papers to
complete their project. Each lady was given a photo for
their scrap book.
On the following day, all
of SAS WINGFIELD’s women got on a bus to the Waterfront
to board a ferry to Robben Island. They were blessed
with a beautiful sunny day. The ferry to Robben Island
was an enjoyable experience as the ladies sat on board
enjoying the sea breeze and the amazing view of Table
On the Island the ladies
boarded a bus and were taken on the historic tour of the
island, their journey was an emotional roller coaster as
there were some sad, interesting and exciting moments.
Getting to hear and see where our previous beloved
former president Nelson Mandela spent 27 years was sad
and also amazing. After an interesting insightful tour
they returned to the Waterfront for lunch.
Ladies having a great time
After two amazing days SAS
WINGFIELD ladies are motivated and empowered as all
women around the world.
