ECO-V 11th Anniversary

Last year was our 10th year and we had a real journey to mark our 10th anniversary and that was kelani Nadee yathra. Again this year we are busy with some more exiting work so we could not do anything to celebrate our 11th Anniversary. Instead we are working hard to save environment.  Our most senior member and always wanted encouraging us to get to gether to do something as members is Mr Sugathadasa...evrybody's Sugathadasa uncle. He suggested we should meet for a lunch and have a friendly chat. So as always it was a very quick action. We decided to meet in Colombo. Whoever could make it was invited to have a lunch and our volunteer Jakie was also with us. She reports about our meeting...

Today, many of the ECO-V volunteers met to share lunch and have a general catch-up, which I’m told was many months overdue. Personally, it was great to meet the diverse and very friendly crowd of volunteers! I could sense that everyone enjoyed catching up and many stories were exchanged. After lunch, the group headed to a nearby park where we sat in a shady location and Kanchana shared updates including relaying the tips from the Power & Energy Minister’s talk the previous day.

The rest of the month is looking like it will be a busy time as we prepare for the Kelani Nadee Yatra exhibition to be held at the Public Library, Colombo from the 29th – 31st March.
