Our 2nd annual Membership night is in the books. A fun filled night of song, nostalgia and great food. We strolled through some cotton fields, went down a few country roads only to return happily to the green green grass of home. Everything from Woody Guthrie to Tom Jones and Englebert Humperdinck helped us reminisce and revere days of yore. There were many talents on display yesterday. The main stage band consisting of the silky smooth vocals and instrumentation of Shantha, Kumaru and Ravi. They were accompanied by many talented members like Vishan, Gihan, Daniel, Trevor, Gihan’s Wife Buddhika and Mrs Kail Rajah to name but a few.
