Senior Citizens celebrates 15th Anniversary
Senior Citizen Mandal ‘s Party was held on 28th August 2011 at our Samaj Hall to celebrate their fifteen years.  It was an opportunity for all the Senior Citizens of our Samaj to get together, celebrate and listen to some of our invited guests who have done a lot of work for both our community as well as wider community.

Before the programme started, the traditional Divo ceremony was done by Mrs Nirmalaben Bavalia, Sakuben Kansagra and  ladies from our Senior Citizen Mandal’s committee.

The Right Honourable Mr Bob Blackman MP for Harrow East, Mr Sureshbhai Kansagra JP who is now Conservative Councillor for Kenton and Bipinbhai Kantaria MBE were all honoured and welcomed by Mr Babubhai Makadia President of Senior Citizen Mandal.

 The President had also invited other dignitaries.  They were Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, The Right Honourable Mr Barry Gardiner Labour MP for Brent East as well as Lord Dollar Popat.  Unfortunately they could not attend this function due to other commitment but had sent their apologies through their offices.

 Mr Rameshbhai  Bhandari who is one of the Trustees of St. Luke’s Hospice in Harrow was also invited that day. Rameshbhai showed DVD of work carried out by the Hospice and how the hospice takes care of patients with incurable illness and making sure they receive best possible quality of life during the final stage of illness.

After the speeches by all our invited guests and our Samaj President Mr Rajendrabhai Changela there was a dance by Yashika Savani and a beautiful traditional garba by our senior and not so senior ladies. Mr Mansukhbhai  Bhalodia also entertained us with his jokes.

Before the second part of the programme started lunch was served which was kindly donated by Mr Mukundbhai and Nirmalben Bavalia and family.

No Samaj party is complete without a game of bingo which was followed by a sangeet programme by Bollywood Beats.  It was great to see all our senior members enjoying old film songs and they also managed to dance and do garbas with the group.

Mr Babubhai Makadia thanked the Bavalia Family for donating the cost of refreshments and food, Mr Ratibhai Kansagra and Family for the cost of music.  The gifts for the entertainers were donated by Mr Vinubhai Dadhania and Family. He also thanked all the volunteers who helped  organise this function.

Thanks you goes all the 350 senior citizens who attended the party as there would not be a get together like this without them.

 May god bless them all with good health to keep this Mandal alive and active.
