The usual family meeting turned out to be a mini Governors' visit – it was so vibrant with all sorts of projects and a sprinkling of entertainment for the anns and annets who turned out in large numbers. Rtn.K.Girish anchored the entertainment part with some tricky game shows and made the floor lively. Everyone – be it anns, annets or rotarians - participated with equal enthusiasm and won gifts from the president liberally which was presented by our DG B Arumugapandian.
A few deserving elderly women and some school children were given a helping hand and were donated new cotton sarees, school bags, rain coat, umbrellas and geometry boxes for their use. The goodies were presented by DG Arumugapandian to the beneficiaries.
