‘SHAWCO kid’ on fact-finding mission to Vancouver

Join us as SHAWCO Executive Director, Gavin Joachims, (himself a SHAWCO kid), presents an update on SHAWCO’s activities and impact on the communities it serves in the Western Cape.

Date: Monday, May 15, 2017
Time: 6:00 - 8:30 pm. Dinner will be served from 6:40.
Venue: Georgian Court Hotel, 773 Beatty Street, Vancouver BC V6B 2M4

Please RSVP by following this link. We are finalising our catering numbers, so please don’t delay in responding.

Many alumni were volunteers at SHAWCO, and may have photographs of their time in SHAWCO - Gavin is on a fact-finding mission to retrieve and copy photographs for the giant collage he is compiling tracking SHAWCO over the past 75 years, in time for its momentous anniversary in 2018.

We ask that you welcome Gavin to Vancouver, bring your photographs for him to copy, and enjoy seeing what SHAWCO has achieved in the last few years.

This is also a great time for fellow-alumni to catch up since our last event.

We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver.
