I just love it when a town is positive and filled with pride. I visited Graaff-Reinet recently and the town’s pride is palpable. And the following message just received shows one example of their community spirit:
Friends, fellow Graaff-Reinetters, Eastern Capers, or where ever you are in South Africa – Please help Graaff-Reinet win the DORP VAN DIE JAAR competition – SMS the word – Graaff-Reinet to 33157 – max 100 sms per phone & closing date is 15 June at 12:00 (noon)
One thing – only SA cellphones will work (Sorry no votes from overseas will count)
The challenge – please can each person get 2 other people to sms as well & get them to ask their friends to sms & this way we will ensure that Graaff-Reinet gets a spot in the final.
If you have sms a 100 times, will you post it on the wall. In order for us to get a vague idea of how many sms have been sent (RAPPORT is keeping everything secret!!!)
Graaff-Reinet deserves the title DORP VAN DIE JAAR; actually I can see the banner across Church Street already!!!
We’re so in it to win it!!!
SMS Graaff-Reinet to 33157 now!
