The Gala Dinner held at St Mary’s DSG was the major attraction point of the celebrations. In his address to the members present, Bishop Jo thanked everyone for their support and further indicated that Tumelong is not a rich organisation, and if parishes can give, as per the Synod Resolution, towards Tumelong, another 70 years will be realised. He further paid tribute to Mrs Mary White whose unwavering support of Tumelong, over the years, was unquestionable and immaculate. “Its people like Mrs White who represent the love of Christ to those less fortunate”, the Bishop exclaimed.
Mr John Mojapelo, who was one of the speakers and the author of “ The corner people of Lady Selborne”, which records six decades of the life in Lady Selborne, where Tumelong was established. In his address he highlighted Tumelong as ‘a Chicky Tumelong’ which was at the fore front of challenging the powers of the time on the issues that people were dealing with.
We convey our sincere gratitude to all who participated in the events and those who continue to support the work of Tumelong. We still have a Brick for Development , with only 70 bricks going at R1000 per brick, each brick will be engraved with the name or logo of the sponsor. These Brick will be used to erect a Tumelong Development Wall towards the end of the year.
Please continue to journey with Tumelong towards its centennial existence.
