Erven Mtimkhulu: “Round Table is a place where we discuss ideas of how to create events that can positively change people’s lives.”
Opening the British Industries Fair in 1927, the Prince of Wales said “The young business and professional men of this country must get together round the table, adopt methods that have proved so sound in the past, adapt them to the changing needs of the time and, whenever, possible, improve them.”
And here we are in White River almost 90 years later and a group of fine young men are practicing what a former first lady of the United States of America once stated “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”
Round Table in Southern Africa includes South Africa and Namibia and is described in their Orange Handbook as “Round Table Southern Africa is a non-political, non-denominational association of young men between the ages of 18 & 40, embracing representatives of nearly every profession and occupation, whose objects encompass the encouragement of high ethical standards, promotion of networking and fellowship among young professional men, the quickening of individual interest everything affecting the public welfare, the promotion of understanding amongst peoples of different cultural, language and political backgrounds.”
Having chartered in 1957, Round Table White River 64 will turn 60 soon, a wonderful milestone to celebrate. Meetings are held at 19h00 on the first and last Thursday of the month at their clubhouse.
Round Table White River 64’s motto is: Adopt Adapt Improve and membership is open to professional and business young men between the ages of 18 & 40.
Table’s Aims and Objectives are:
° To develop fellowship among young men through the medium of their professional and business occupations
° To emphasize the fact that one’s calling offers an excellent medium of service to the community

Worthy principles and We Are White River wishes Round Table 64 strong growth.
