On Saturday 22nd of October 2016, Paarl 41ers Club were chartered at a Black-Tie function at Windmeul Cellars - Paarl. This charter was in conjunction with the 60th Birthday celebrations of RT Paarl 44.
41'er Ass President Andre De Villiers and his lovely wife Miemie, came down from Harrismith to handle the charter of the new club. Herman Roux was inducted as the 1st Chairman of Paarl 41ers Club and he received his new chairman’s jewel/gong, sponsored by RT Paarl 44, from the Chairman Wynand Haasbroek of RT Paarl 44. Paarl 41ers club have 7 active members and they undertook to grow the club.
The forming of the club is a direct outflow from efforts from 41ers Ass of SA visibility at ARTSA together and the assistance and guidance of Past President and Current District Councillor Gertjie Coetzee.
Attending this occasion as aid to 41er President Andre, was Past President Koos Coetzee and Elsa and Current WP District Councillor and Past President Gertjie Coetzee and Annemie.
The evening was enjoyed in true Table tradition and fellowship and what made the evening more special was the 60th birthday celebrations of RT Paarl 44. 5 Past RT WP Area Chairman was present at the function and the current WP Area Chairman was under the special guests.
This was a fantastic example of how 41ers Ass of SA and RTSA can work together to honour the MOU that was signed between the 2 Associations.
