Some 80 people attended the Farewell function and enjoyed the coffee, the savoury finger food, the sausage rolls, the cakes, the brezels and the scones, amidst lively handshakes and "long-time no see" greetings. There were speeches and recollections down memory lane, and congratulary toasts and community singing, with young ladies with serving trays flitting unobtrusive between them. Rolf and Vyrna in turn responded to the toasts, acknowledging the support received from the community over the years in their endeavours.
The official part of the afternoon ended with a community sing-a-long of several traditional Volkslieder, like "Kein schoener Land..." and "In einem kuehlen Grunde..." and "Ade zur guten Nacht...". It was a most pleasant afternoon.
