The Housewarming ceremony was performed from 8.31 am to 10.30 am today the 23 Aug 2021 in our new permanent premises. The rain Gods favoured us with good weather. Unfortunately Brig Vidyasagar our founder President & Chief Mentor could not attend due to sudden sickness. However, the Bhishma Pitamaha and Founder General Secretary Col (Dr) GB Sethi graced the occasion with 35 other Members locally. The pooja was performed by Col Sitaramaiah, Vice President, HFO AV Reddy, Vice President and me with all vedic hymns and rituals to bless TSEWA. Hony Capt B Joseph, Hony Capt MN Reddy, Mr. Anand, Mr. Srinivasa Reddy and others went out of the way and worked tirelessly for decorating the premises and making all the arrangements. Home made ‘prasad’ from Col G Parvathesam, our General Secretary and Mr. Srinivasa Reddy were the highlights.
The new furniture is being shifted and after full furnishing, we will have formal Inauguration on Sunday the 29th Aug 2021. Some of the photos of the pooja are attached for your information.
There is no denying the fact that this is made possible by the generous donations from some of our Members. The names of 37 Donors who have donated more than Rs.20,000/- are displayed on a prominent Board in the office. The complete list of Donors is being uploaded to our Blog tomorrow. There are still four un-reconciled amounts. Donors may kindly peruse the list at our Blog tomorrow and Members whose names are missing for want of reconciliation may please intimate the transfer details at the earliest.
Thank you all Donors once again for giving us the permanent premises.
