1). We regret that we had to change our weekly gathering from Thursday to Wednesday, but this was unavoidable due to major electrical works at the Centre.

2).  It is with deep regret and sadness that we inform members the passing away of Manishaben’s mother in law in India yesterday.  Our deepest condolences to the family and we pray that her soul rests in eternal peace.  Om Shanti     Shanti   Shanti. 
Manishaben has flown to India and will not be attending next Thursday.

3). Today’s Yoga was conducted by Ushaben Mehta and Dineshbhai Shah.   Many thanks to both from Kendra.

5). After lunch today we will have a programme on Fathers Day and as usual at Tea Time, Kendra will provide tea and biscuits.
Vinodbhai Kapashi compered the programme and gave a brief introduction of why “Fathers Day” is celebrated – as is known, always much priority and celebrations are done for “Mothers Day” and the sacrifices of fathers are put in the background.
Some members then spoke on the subject giving their personal experiences.

6). Next Thurs – 21/6,  will be in the ‘Parliamentary Week’ and we will have  speakers from MPs/Councillors.

7).  As response to our proposed trip to Potters Resort has been poor we will therefore not go there this year.
