“Dorothy and I acknowledge the welcoming gift which you gave us on our arrival at our new home in the Village and for the wonderful friendship which you have all shown to us since our arrival.

We left Orroroo, where we had both lived for our entire lives, feeling a little uneasy as to how we would settle in our new surroundings and how we would miss our lifetime friends.

Those feelings have been blown away by the sincerity of your welcome and the many acts of kindness that you have all shown to us since our arrival. Yes we will miss our old friends and not forgotten them, but we have found some wonderful new friends and you have made us feel that this is indeed our “NEW HOME”.

We are enjoying our new life with you all and hope we will become useful members of this village.”

– Dorothy & Rex
