The Mangalorean Association of Canada (MAC) had its Annual Family Picnic on June 29, 2013. It was another successful event held at the Meadowvale Conservation Park, Mississauga.

There were games, food and prizes galore. Organizers were pumped and the participants were enthusiastic as the games were conducted. All ages (2 years to 60+ years) within the community had something to participate in. Beautiful weather and cool winds contributed to this remarkable day. Amidst all the excitement and entertainment, one could hear the echoes of the blaring megaphone announcements, cheering of the games and sounds of laughter and camaraderie.

Games such as the sack race, the 3-legged race, the lemon and spoon race, water balloon toss, tug-of-war and Bingo brought the young and the young at heart together. The scrumptious potluck, the mouthwatering desserts and the evening ďgingerĒ tea culminated in a day well spent with family and friends. Congratulations to all the winners and to everyone who joined in the fun.

MAC appreciates the generosity of the sponsors: Jane DíSouza, Sales Rep., HomeLife/Bayview Realty Inc. Brokerage (Direct: 647-926-2165) and Maxim DíMello of Maxpres Financial Solutions (Contact:416-473-6729)

Events : MAC celebrates its 2013 Annual Family Social
on 2013/6/1 9:10:00 (1513 reads)

The Family Social organized by the Mangalorean Association of Canada (MAC) on the 25th of May, 2013 was a remarkable demonstration of organization, pulsating music, delicious food and pure fun. The band and DJ, The Marawders, led by the extremely talented Ralph Privitera and ably supported by Pete Cosgrove, Rick Matten, Dominic DeSouza and Errol DeMello made the event memorable with their fantastic youthful music and singing. The emcee, Melwyn DíSilva created an ambience of comfort with his repartee, jokes and skilful manipulation of the program.

The evening began with a short welcome speech by Ronald Fernandes, President of MAC. In his speech, he highlighted the support and generosity of the sponsors, the selflessness of our volunteers and the dedication of his Executive Committee. He also thanked the clergy for their continued spiritual support of the association. Ronald then welcomed the main sponsor of the event, Gord Mohan. This was followed by a music session by the band. Irrespective of age, the young and old swayed and danced while abandoning all inhibitions and indulging in pure pleasure and a stress-free evening. Dinner was catered by Swagath Banquet Hall and was a spectacular buffet of salads, vegetables, meat and dessert created to please all kinds of palates and fussy eaters.

The highlight of the Family Social was the amazing performance by a group of youngsters, whose dance group is called ĎHeartbeatsí. Kudos to the young performers: Irita Karmalkar, Michelle Patrao, Naomi Shankar, Amit Shankar, Rhea Pinto & Shreya Goyal who displayed an energy and enthusiasm parallel to none. The audience was enthralled as the youth displayed a confidence, agility and a lively spirit that had everyone swinging to the beat of the music. The attractive door prizes and the raffle prizes allured the guests who rushed to buy tickets. The lucky winners were thrilled and satisfied to win many gifts.
