Last week saw P being inducted as the National President for 41 Club South Africa. The week-end was held at Heia Safari Lodge and was a huge success. It started off on Friday afternoon, with registrants coming from all over the world! We held a "Meet and Greet" on Friday night, where old friendships were rekindled and lots of new ones made! On Saturday morning, the men held their AGM, while I entertained the ladies in the Boma! I had someone come in and do their nails, and also had some ladies from the Mangwanani African Day Spa do massages. It was a relaxing and quiet morning and the ladies all enjoyed it very much!
Saturday evening saw the Induction dinner. P was lucky enough to be inducted by the International President, Mr John Bellwood, who come from the Royal Forest of Dean in the UK.
The theme was "A Walk on the Wild side" - I tried to keep the table decorations simple in keeping with the them! I thought they were quite pretty! Thank you Dee for doing them for me!

It was a really great week-end and now the hard work starts. P has lots of ideas and is looking forward to his year. Part of his duties will be to visit Finland in April to represent our country at the International Conference. I will be going with him and am looking forward to our overseas trip - it's been a long time!
