It was a festive lunch in which WIZO South Africa’s honorary life chairperson, Annette Price, was honoured on her 90th birthday. Executive member Yvonne Jawitz wrote and read out a wonderful ode to Annette, which sums up what an amazing lady she is:

I’d like to pay a tribute to a lady we hold dear

Who’s devoted time to WIZO for many, many a year

She’s always on the lookout for unsuspecting prey

And signs them up at bridge or shul or even at a play

She’s known as the “orchids” lady who ran a florist empire

Created arrangements for every occasion, until she chose to retire

Tall and always elegant; committed and unafraid

She’s shown us all at meetings, how strong Zionist women are made

Shake the Tzedakah tins girls … it’s music to her ears

And as you shake, a picture of Annette instantly appears

She holds the title of honorary life … which she so deservedly earned

And at 90, in her love of Israel, she still leaves no stone unturned

We wish you many more years, Annette, of involvement in all that we do

You’re not allowed to retire just yet, but can have a holiday or two
