District Chairman Vidhya Subramanian was happy with our club performance in all aspects. The books were maintained correctly, the projects were well selected and executed, and our active participation in District projects and events was noted.
Member Kanan Mehta exchanged ISO Flags with Bangalore Clubs.
President Tejal Damani exchanged ISO Flags with Surat Clubs.
It was a privilege to represent our club at the West Zone Meet, Surat with Mita Sheth.
For the ISO event, 5 Pink Auto Rickshaws were inaugurated by Dist 314.
Bayview co-sponsored the Auto Rickshaw project.
A very "festive" look, plus the colourful vegetables, topped with the enthusiasm of all our members made the perfect recipe for an enjoyable and funfilled afternoon. The veggie carving workshop was undoubtedly a hit!
The most awaited event of the year, our annual overnighter trip, was to Bhopal this year. Staying in luxury at the Jehan Numa Palace hotel, our group of 28 ladies had a super vacation!
No one would have thought of Bhopal as a vacation destination- but from the airport we went directly for local chaats and an immediate full heritage experience with our special guide, Sikandar Mallik. He took us around the timeless lanes of Bhopal for a "Heritage Walk" by bus. This was followed by a sumptious lunch at the very opulent Jehan Numa Retreat.
For the evening festivities, we embarked on a specially arranged boat ride, which ended in a Super Bling themed party at the hotel.
Next day we went to Van Vihar and after breakfast went for a visit to The Sanchi Stupa. It is an amazingly well maintained structure from 2500 years ago. The evening was spent visiting the Taj Ul Mosque and doing some local shopping. Back at the hotel, we had a Dhamaakedaar Games Night!
By the time our departure day came around the next morning, each of us felt the deeper bonds of friendship and felicity, which we have carried back with us, along with some very with fond memories.
