It's almost time for Rag procession 2012
2012-01-25

 
This year Rag is bigger and better.

This year’s Kovsie Rag of our universities Bloemfontein Campus promises to stand out head and shoulders above all previous years.

Kovsie Rag and Kovsie Community Service joined hands and is now known as Kovsie Rag Community Service.

For this reason, during this year’s Rag Procession in Heidedal and Mangaung, Kovsie Rag Community Service will distribute food parcels in this community.

The processions in Heidedal and Mangaung will both take place on Saturday 28 January 2012 at 10:00.

In Heidedal participants in the Rag Procession will distribute food parcels at the Twin City Shopping Centre and in Mangaung food parcels will be distributed at the Kenilworth Shopping Centre.

The programme for the Rag Procession is also well underway and first-years are eagerly building floats for this year’s Rag Procession on Saturday 28 January 2012

At 18:00 the main procession will start from the UFS and move to the final destination at Old Greys where DJ Black Coffee and Die Heuwels Fantasties will perform.

For the first time in Rag history, a Mr Rag will this year be crowned together with Miss Rag at the Crowning Ceremony Ball on Friday 3 February 2012.

The purpose of Kovsie Rag Community Service is to raise funds for charity and it is currently the biggest of its kind in South Africa.

“We are in the process of exceeding all expectations” says Pieter Badenhorst, Kovsie Rag officer.
