ALMANAC OF THE PAST YEAR

BLESSED GÉRARD'S CARE CENTRE'S ALMANAC OF THE PAST YEAR:

 

September, 1995 the working drawings are passed by Mandeni Town Board

October, 1995 the building begins - the site is cleared, the foundations are marked on the ground and the excavation begins.

February, 1996 A 40ft container with equipment arrives from Mr. Meehan in Milwaukee and is offloaded into storage

March, 1996 the foundation stone is laid in the centre of the soon-to-be-poured floor of the chapel

June, 1996 Sr. Elaine Taylor from The Irish Order of Malta Ambulance Corps arrives in South Africa, to train our Active Members

July, 1996 the first home nursing courses for our members begin

August, 1996 the final stages of the construction

This is a major understatement of what has actually happened. Anyone who has ever had anything to do with the construction of a building of this size will appreciate this fact.
