Message from president

Dear Esteemed Members,

I would like to begin this newsletter by expressing my heartfelt gratitude for your

continuous support and participation.

I would like I to start by sharing one of my favorite quotes.

People are unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

In life, it's important to be kind to others, even when they may not deserve it. There will always be people ​who accuse you of having ulterior motives, but continue to be kind anyway .

Even if you are honest, some people may try to cheat you. Be honest anyway.

And if you find happiness, there may be people who are jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good deeds you do today may be forgotten tomorrow, but do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

Because, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

- Mother Teresa

As your new president, I am committed to continuing the work of our predecessors and take our organization ​to even greater heights.

In October, we had an exciting lineup of events that catered to various interests and ​important health topics.

We ​also continued our coffee mornings and Meet & Greet sessions, providing ​opportunities for community bonding. Additionally, we organized a visit to the Breast ​Cancer Welfare Association and successfully collected donations to support their ​cause. These events allowed our community to come together, learn, and support ​important health initiatives.

In November, we celebrated Deepavali with a joyous event, embracing the spirit of the festival of lights. We also ​continued our Meet & Greet sessions to foster community connections. Our newly launched dance class ​provided a fun and energetic way for members to stay active and learn new skills.
