DOUBLE CELEBRATING PLATINUM AND DIAMOND JUBILEES

It is with great pride and honor to inform you all that we are celebrating our Platinum Jubilee this year to mark 75 great years our Samaj was inaugurated.

 

Another stepping-stone of our Samaj is Motiben Parajia Pattni Soni Samaj Building was formally opened 60 years years ago.

 

NOW OUR NEW VENTURE - MINI SHOPPING COMPLEX

On a point of new development, we are putting up a mini shopping complex on our frontage of the existing building at a cost of K.shs. Five million. The present committee conceived an idea to generate income to the Samaj and cushion against daily escalating maintenance cost. Estimated completion time of this project is August this year.

Message from Pranbhai Dhanak, Editor/Webmaster

The response to the appeal by the Mombasa Samaj struck close to much sentimentality for Mombasa by Pattni members worldwide and felt that they would want to make a donation towards this worthy project.

 

Proud Pattni members have risen to occasion. The amazing generosity of members has also inspired others to make the donations.  I shall be all the donations received with me to hand over to the Mombasa Committee personally.

 

Donations received are in Pounds in round figures. So after converting to K. Shs, there will be some funds left over. All donors have agreed that we spend this amount by distributing food at an orphanage in Mombasa. This will be the first time ever that well have a Samuh Sponsored Meal by the Pattni members worldwide.

 

List of all donations received will be announced at the Dinner Party as well as on Pattni Connection website

 

Members in UK, USA and Canada who wish to make a donation are requested to contact me by e-mail at PattniConnection@gmail.com

Many thanks to all who have contributed to our plea & it is very overwhelming  to see many members still have a soft spot for the Mombasa Samaj, although they have left the town many years ago.

 

We will strive to give the Samaj, the status it needs & with so much enthusiasm both overseas & locally & not forgetting the ever blessing of our Kurdevi Maa, we will achieve our goals as anticipated.
