The MAC FAMILY SOCIAL 2015, organised by Mangalorean Association of Canada (MAC) on Saturday the 23rd of May was a resounding success, and an event to remember for a long time to come.

The program began with the band playing popular soft songs of yesteryears which instantly created a romantic atmosphere in the Grand Taj Banquet Hall. At once there was "love in the air", and the dance floor flooded with couples both young and the old. The ambience so created remained afloat until the end of the program. The spellbinding music by the band BIGFOOT was in itself a thrilling experience. The seasoned members of the band with decades of experience behind each of them, delivered a thorough mixture of old and the new hit songs entertaining every soul until midnight. The Dashing Master of Ceremonies, ever popular Ivan D'Lima, created a comfortable environment with his wit, humour, and impeccable vocabulary entertaining the crowd throughout the program.

With over 20 couples participating, the Dance Competitions in two different genres i.e., Cha Cha Cha and Jive concluded successfully. While, Daryl & Melanie bagged first place, John & Daisy secured second place. In the Cha Cha Cha Category, Alan & Seema won first place, Daryl & Melanie won Second Place in the Jive Category.

Once again this year, the Goveas Sisters Samantha & Savannah mesmerised the crowd with their well synchronised Bollywood style performance. Their dance created a theatrical atmosphere in the auditorium with everyone scrambling to get a perfect view of the girls in action.

The line dancing under the guidance of Janet, Louella, Lydwin and Anita took everyone by storm. With over 100 dance enthusiasts rushing to the dance floor and tapping their feet to the well-arranged medley of songs, it was a lovely sight to watch.

Maxim D'Mello, President of MAC thanked the Sponsors for their generosity and unceasing support year after year. He emphasised the accomplishments of the association and the selfless service rendered by the executive committee. A plaque was presented to the team members of Radio Mango, in recognition of their unceasing support and committed service to the Konkani Community.

Gerry D'Mello invoked God's Blessings before declaring the scrumptious Buffet Dinner open.

With lots of goodies, prizes, delicious food, lovely music and lots of dance, it was indeed a night to remember.

MAC expresses its genuine gratitude to the guests who attended the Family Social despite commitments and busy schedules. MAC recognizes and appreciates the collaboration, support and assistance of the evenings' well-wishers and sponsors. 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.

Events : 5th Annual OKA Communication and Leadership Workshop on April 25, 2015
on 2015/4/26 0:10:00 (610 reads)

By Ronald D'Souza and Lawrentina D'Souza

This highly interactive Program based on the "Learning by Doing" principle targeted our youth by equipping them with the tools to communicate concise and impactful messages. The workshop also provided students with skills they can use immediately in class presentations, and other university experiences, and carry into their professional careers.

Below is the impression provided by Lawrentina D'Souza:

Today, we had the opportunity of attending a useful Leadership and Careers workshop hosted by the Ontario Konkani Association. The main objective was to be a successful communicator, observer, and doer. This was accomplished through activities such as personality assessments, mock interviews, and impromptu speeches. We also learned a fair deal about our potential futures through university and career presentations, booths, and discussions. It was an interesting day where we developed our skills and understanding and enjoyed a great youth bonding experience. The quality of the knowledge we acquired was priceless and we urge our fellow youth members to make use of such opportunities as well.

The participants from MAC are

-Jolene Lewis
-Lawrentina D'Souza
-Yohan Roche
-Clementina D'Souza
-Joanne Lewis
-Cassandra D'Cunha
