2nd Quarterly Apple Awards

On 7 June the second quarterly Apple Awards for 2013 took place and as always, it did not disappoint. Newtons was honoured to have Professor Hentie van Wyk from the UFS as the guest of honour for the evening. Professor Van Wyk has made a lifelong contribution to the Accountancy Profession and a Newtons jacket was handed over to him as a token of our appreciation. The quarterly Apple Award was awarded to Norman du Plooy and well deservingly so. He has shown utmost dedication and loyalty to Newtons and has been a valuable asset to the firm over the last few years. Well done Norman!

The evening also proved to be full of surprises. A lucky draw took place and a weekend’s stay for two in the Protea Hotel Bloemfontein, with the compliments of Lucia, was up for grabs. Elrico Greyvenstein was the lucky winner.

The evening was a great success and the Newtons employees took the chance to recharge and spend some quality time together.

See you next quarter when we do it again, the Newtons way.
