6). Our Secretary – Jayantbhai Doshi will now talk about lunch and food.  Jayantbhai announced that he wanted to clear up a misunderstanding about the food left over after lunch.  He stated that the volunteers have now started to take the food in the kitchen to pack in packets/utensils for sale, as previously there used to be rush of members on the serving tables to buy food packets and no one was following the instructions to make a queue.  He said that those who are still eating and want extra food from the kitchen will request the kitchen volunteers who will give any item if it is available. If need arise any item will be opened from the pack/utensil to be given to members.
7).  Jasuben Sheth informed members who wanted to take part in the next week’s programme to give her their names.  They can speak or sing a song, recite a poem pertaining to mothers or women.  Also she informed that Vinodbhai Kapashi has written a play and those who are willing to take part and devote some time in practises should give their names.
