Secretary’s Report

           Jai Shree Krishna
           This year of 2018 has gone by at the blink of eye and I pray that the
           new year brings good health, peace and happiness to you all.

           It gives me immense pleasure to serve our community in the role of
           Honorary Secretary for this second year. I have enjoyed working with
           the Executive Committee and all operating bodies and am grateful
           for their continued support.

           The last few months have been very busy with pivotal events including Navratri and
           Diwali. We have been organising Navratri festival at the DLC for 4 seasons now, and I
           am glad to see an increase in popularity year on year with weekend tickets sold out well
           in advance. This year for Chopda pujan also, we had an overwhelming response. The
           Diwali Mehfi l and Milan were enjoyed by all who attended. Once again, we are grateful
           to our sponsors Late Dwarkadasbhai and Nimuben Kotecha and family for sponsoring
           Jalaram Jayanti. We were very fortunate to felicitate Pradipbhai Dhamecha for receiving
           an OBE during the Jalaram Jayanti event, with circa 800 guests attending. I am pleased
           to say that all events hosted this year were well attended and appreciated.
           Our Senior Ladies and Gentlemen, Mahilas and the YLS have each organised successful
           event for the members. The Connexions team has been working hard in providing
           services to its candidates. All their events were sold out and we received positive
           feedback from attendees.
           A polite reminder that this year, the AGM will be held on Sunday 7th April 2019 and we
           look forward to participation from all members. You will receive the AGM bulletin and
           notice by the middle of March 2019.

           I would like to take this opportunity to thank our President Urmilaben Thakkar MBE, and the
           Executive Committee for always supporting and assisting me. My special thanks go to
           my assistant secretary Sanjay Rughani for his help. Thank you to Madhu Popat for taking
           detailed notes; and thank you to our Vice President Yatin Dawada & Immediate Past
           President Vinod Thakrar for their guidance.

           Finally, a personal thanks to my husband Nitin for his patience. I would also like to thank
           my daughter Krupa, her husband Soren & the youngest member of our family, my 1-year
           grandson Luca for always encouraging me from far away. I must not forget our sponsors
           and the community members. It is because of your support we have been able to
           accomplish so much.
