JOYOUS CELEBRATION OF GO GEORGE'S THIRD BIRTHDAY

Birthday banners at strategic points in town, communication champions dressed up in bright GO GEORGE colours, pompoms and placards with birthday messages, noisy whistles … If George residents and holidaymakers had not been in a festive mood already, they sure were after a drive through town on Friday, 8 December 2017, the third birthday of the GO GEORGE bus service.

Motorists cheerfully responded with joyful hooting and waving, acknowledging this huge achievement for the City of George.

The GO GEORGE team surprised the children at Life Community Services' centre in Parkdene with a visit from everybody's favourite bus person, mascot Georgie, and loads of blue and green cupcakes.

"There was no better way of celebrating our birthday than bringing joy to these little ones," said James Robb, GO GEORGE Manager. "Hearing them sing 'Happy birthday, dear GO GEORGE' at the top of their voices, warmed our hearts and put the cherry on top of our birthday cake."

 

CAPTIONS:

Georgie could not keep himself from quickly popping over the street to Happy Feet, Life's early childhood development centre, where he clearly gate-crashed a pool party. The little ones waved and cheered at first, and even sang Georgie a birthday song. However, the minute he started walking in among the inflatable pools, they jumped ship and ran towards their teachers as if a shark had entered the bay! It took some Georgie charm to win their trust.

 

GO GEORGE SE DERDE VERJAARSDAG VREUGDEVOL GEVIER

 

Verjaarsdagbaniere op strategiese plekke in die dorp, GO GEORGE-personeel in helderkleurige kostuums, pompoms en plakkate met verjaarsdagboodskappe, raserige fluitjies ... As George-inwoners en vakansiegangers nie reeds in ’n feestelike luim was nie, was hulle dit verseker ná 'n draai deur die dorp op Vrydag 8 Desember 2017, die GO GEORGE-busdiens se derde verjaarsdag.

Motoriste het meelewend gereageer met ’n vrolike getoet en gewuif, in erkenning van hierdie grootse prestasie vir die stad George.

Die GO GEORGE-span het die kinders by Life Community Services se sentrum in Parkdene verras met ’n besoek van almal se gunsteling-buspersoon, die gelukbringer Georgie, en ’n hele vrag groen en blou kolwyntjies.

"Daar was nie ’n beter manier om ons verjaarsdag te vier, as om ons vreugde met hierdie kleingoed te deel nie," sê James Robb, GO GEORGE-bestuurder. "Om hulle uit volle bors te hoor sing "Happy birthday, dear GO GEORGE', het ons harte warm gemaak en die kersie op ons verjaarsdagkoek geplaas."

 

ONDERSKRIFTE:

 

Georgie kon hom nie daarvan weerhou om gou oor die straat te glip na Happy Feet, Life se vroeë-kindontwikkelingsentrum waar hy ’n swempartytjie onderbreek het nie. Die kleingoed het aanvanklik gejil en gewuif van plesier, maar die oomblik toe Georgie tussen die opblaasswembadjies inloop, het die hele spulletjie uitgespring en na hul juffrouens toe gehardloop, asof ’n groot haai die baai binnegekom het! Dit het heelwat Georgie-sjarme geverg om hul vertroue te wen.
