Good Afternoon All,
Firstly thank you to Dyane for sharing and to the WILPF for properly honouring your oldest member and survivor of the dynamic, relentless and happy duo I always referred to as “the two Graces”. Secondly to Grace who I trust Dyane or one of you will convey this message, best wishes from your Mayor and Council and thank you for living a life that has always been an example for girls and women to follow. You long ago chose to work for peace and social and economic justice. That meant you were always facing opposition most often from males but have done so with determination, humour and yes, forgive me, grace.
No better time to honour you than International Women’s Day so bask a bit in the sunshine of appreciation for a life well lived. You have earned the accolades so enjoy this and all of us look forward to those better days when we can hug you and thank you in person.
Mayor Leonard Krog
