NAVJIVAN VADIL KENDRA - ANNOUNCEMENTS ON TUES – 17th OCT 2017

Jayantbhai Doshi started the announcements by wishing members a very Happy Diwali and Prosperous New Year.
He also thanked Manishaben for reconsidering her request of members not to stop her when she was leaving the Hall as she had other class immediately afterwards.  In order to help our members, she has rescheduled her other class and now can stay for a while to take members questions on their problems.  Members can now come with a note stating their questions, with their name and contact numbers.  She can then give them proper answer at that time or after making proper research.   Members thanked Manishaben for her effort in helping Kendra.
