Events : MAC Annual Family Social – May 7, 2005
on 2005/5/12 12:50:00 (3632 reads)

To the pulsating resonance of Punjabi music, Reggae, Hip Hop and the mellifluous strains of the waltz and jive, 450 people danced and celebrated at the Annual Family Social organized by the Mangalorean Association of Canada. The third family social held at the Grand Taj Banquet and Convention Center, Mississauga was an exceptional accomplishment with a fusion of activities, music and games for the young and old.


The guests were warmly greeted by members of the MAC Executive Council and escorted to their respective tables by a group of enthusiastic young volunteers. A welcome speech by the emcee, Allwyn Sequeira, set the tone for the evening. Fr. Edwin D'Souza, Pastor of St. Martha and Mary Church, Mississauga, offered thanks to the Lord for His blessings and wished MAC greater success in all their endeavors.

Dinner was a spectacular buffet of salads, vegetables and meat created to please all kinds of palates. New Illusions, the band and DJ for the evening, entertained the guests with hip-swinging music and songs that evoked nostalgic memories. Melwyn Menezes, President of MAC, appreciated and thanked all the guests for participating in the social. He also introduced the launch of the innovative “ Macsaunsar Music Collection” on the MAC website. The music website characterizes the dedication MAC has towards fulfilling its mandate - preserving the Konkani culture and heritage but also bringing this culture, traditions and language closer to a community far away from their homeland.

A scintillating dance performance by Gareth DeSouza, Sapna Bucher, Naureen Kassam, Neera Gujjer, Hassan Syed, Lester Rodrigues, Tristan D’Cunha and Leanna Rodrigues was the highlight of the evening. The audience were enthralled as the youth displayed a confidence, agility and a lively spirit that had everyone swinging to the beat of the music.

Maxim Mendes, Director of Public Relations, proposed a Vote of Thanks. He applauded the selfless generosity of the sponsors and well-wishers of the function as well as the tireless efforts of the Public Relations committee in ensuring that the launch of the Music Website was successful.

MAC expresses its gratitude to the guests who attended the Family Social and ensured its overwhelming success. MAC acknowledges and applauds the support, commitment and dedication of all its members and volunteers who worked hard to organize an event of this magnitude.
