  1. Good day

    I trust your day is going well.
    I wanted to find out whether I could install a DA gazebo at Pride this year where we will be handing out pamphlets and other related goodies.

    I would be attending the functions with members of parliament.
    Also, where is the event going to take place as we are keen on Saturday.

    Best Regards,
