Dear Batchmates

It is comforting  to know  that we have  reached  the last  few  days  of  planning of  the Batch Re-Union  scheduled   on  7th July 2018  ,  at   Jet Wing  Lagoon  ,  Negombo.
While  thanking  those  who responded to the  e mail messages  , made  reservations  in  the  Hotel ,  sent    photographs  for  publication  in  the   Souvenir,  and  been  constantly  in  touch with  us,  there are yet  a  few,  who  still wish to  join in  the  fun , but  have not  booked  their  rooms   and  send   the   photos. 
A few  more  rooms  are still  available  in  the  hotel.

For those  who  intend  to  take  part  in  the  event ,  day  programme  alone  , or   not , I request you ,to please  send  your  recent   photo  as soon  as  possible.  We  have  to  plan  the  contents of  the Souvenir  , giving  the  printer  sufficient  time to complete  the  job.
We have  unanimously  agreed to  have a meeting in  the morning  of 7th  July , with minimum emphasis on  Clinical Medicine .  Instead  , we propose to give an opportunity for anyone, and everyone   from  the  gathering  to  recount  and  share ,  memorable instances ,  that  are  funny  and  humerous ,  in the Medical School.
We  will give  them    5 - 10  minutes  each.   Please  write  to  this  email  address , so  that the  programme can  be  arranged.

A Certificate of attendance will be  provided  to  those who need one. 

Final  Programme will be  sent  shortly.

Thank you
Mana Wedisinghe

Dear  Pearl  &  Sidney.

Thank you  for  your  note  ,  sent  in  response  to  my  previous
missive  .

Yes.  I  received  the  photographs   of  both of  you.  I  also  read  your  names  in  the  list  of  Room  bookings  from  the  Hotel.

We  plan  to  start  the  event ,   on  7th July 2018,  at  9.00  am  with  Registration  of  participants  , charging  Rs  3500.00   per  person to cover  the   cost  of  the  Hotel charges  for  the Hall ,  Lunch  &  tea.

Thereafter ,  we plan to commence  the  meeting  at  11.00 am  and  finish  it  by  1.00 pm   for  Lunch.

As  you  can see,  we need  to  restrict  the  time  given  for presentations  ,etc.

The  Committee  has  decided  to offer  both of  you,   30  minutes  for  your  presentation.   You  will  have  to decide whether  it  is  15 /15   or  otherwise.

The  Final programme will be  posted  to  you  when  available.

Best Regards

Mana Wedisinghe

Thanks for your prompt response & giving all the details. Please give us 10minutes each as there are many who would like to do presentations.
It is an opportunity to share with our dear colleagues outstanding reminisces of the past.
Kind Regards

  1. Hi,Manasarara,
    Other batches except 1962,will feel jealous of you all.Those groups have failed to produce a blog,though they seem to meet every year.
