Concordia elderly people celebrates heritage in traditional style

The service center for the elderly and disabled in Concordia today celebrated heritage in true Namaqua style with a “potjiekos competition”.
The participants are the local elderly community who prepared traditional foods such as tripe, chicken and meat cooked by campfire.
Radio NFM’s Richard Theron and Philandrea Beukes acted as judges at this event.
Elderly people at the Concordia service center were wearing their traditional outfits today and as in the local tradition tripod pots on campfires simmered while traditional dancing created a joyful and communal atmosphere.
Although the competition aims to celebrate the cohesion of the elderly – they strive for a community that is selfless in goodwill.
The elderly would meet daily to make homemade embroidery and sewing pieces to generate funds.
This elderly service center wants to encourage more eldery people within the communities to join their ventures to plow back into the community.
