                                               daar verby gestap en ons jammer
                                               gekry het.
                                               2009 hou vir ons baie belofte in. Na
                                               vele gesukkel met die veranderinge
                                          11
binne die Nasionale Lotery Fonds het
ons uiteindelik daarin geslaag om die
laaste deel van die Lotto-skenking te
kry. Ons slawe- en restitusie-
uitstalling behoort teen Januarie 2009
op die been te wees.
„n Spesiale woord van dank aan my
kollegas veral Hermi Baartman,
Jessie de Gama en Denise van Wyk
wat die fort gehou het terwyl ek „n
loopbaan en student-wees balanseer.
Nodeloos om te sê, die personeel van
hierdie museum is die mees
hardwerkendste      en   pligsgetroue              REDAKSIE
staatsamptenare, daarom kan ek met
trots Patricia Blouw, Denise van Wyk                 Artikels:
en Hermi Baartman uitsonder as                A Kayster & H Baartman
personeellede wat „n baie goeie punt                Redigering:
tydens hul jaarlikse evaluasie gekry
                                              E van Wijk & J De Gama
het.
                                                    Produksie:
Aan al die vriende van die museum,             D van Wyk & N Jacobs
ons       getroue      ondersteuners,
belangstellendes en familie, ons wens
u „n geseënde Christusfees toe, met

voorspoed en geluk sal inhou.
