New Year greet­ings from Makana Tourism

Grocott's Mail - - MAKANA VOICES -

Jan­uary is the half-way point in our Fi­nan­cial Year and a time to re­flect on the work and projects that Makana Tourism has done and been in­volved with since last July and the Fes­ti­val.

Did you know that in the past six months, Gra­ham­stown/Makana has had ap­prox­i­mately 251 events in­clud­ing talks, lec­tures, sport­ing fix­tures, fetes, din­ners and mu­si­cal per­for­mances?

Please check Tourism’s web­site daily for the lat­est events in our area: www.gra­ham­stown.co.za.

Makana Tourism had its AGM in Oc­to­ber and we voted in a new board with sub-com­mit­tees to deal with spe­cific ar­eas of fo­cus such as fi­nance, events and mem­ber­ship.

A fun mem­ber­ship even­ing fol­lowed in Novem­ber at the 49ers Restau­rant in the Pep­per Grove Mall where we were roy­ally treated.

Hap­pily, Tourism’s mem­ber­ship is grow­ing and we have a new mem­ber­ship cat­e­gory – Friends of Makana Tourism (for peo­ple who do not run a busi­ness or ac­com­mo­da­tion es­tab­lish­ment) – at R100 per year.

Call our of­fice to­day for more in­for­ma­tion.

Makana Tourism sells bus tick­ets for City to City and Translux buses. We of­fer friendly ser­vice and no queues. We can ex­change and re­fund tick­ets, but only if the tick­ets are bought from our of­fice.

De­cem­ber was a very busy month with three projects that Makana Tourism was part of:

Day for Life/Day of the Dead, the Bonds of Friend­ship Fes­ti­val and the New Year’s Cup.

Day for Life/Day of the Dead
