MOM: Sept 26, 2010

We had a fun filled session today.

We started off with the Minutes of the Committee Meeting held on Sept. 25. The accounts of the Onam programs were also presented and passsed.

This was followed by dumb charades. The gathering was divided in to 2 teams. Each team had to ask one of their representatives to act out a character, like St Thomas, St. Stephen etc, while the rest guessed the character.

It was easier than expected as almost every team guessed all their characters ! All well versed in the Bible. It also shows -why we had a lot of accolades for the skit presented in the Onam Celebrations :-)

Important Note : Oct. 2nd Week - Oct 10th Sunday will be the Youth Sunday. Please make sure all attend it and be blessed. Rev. V. M. Mathew achen will lead the worship service and retreat program.

BTW do not forget to post your comments in the Onam Program blogs, ....  

We had 2 members celebrating their birthdays in our group this week.  21st was Biju's and Monday 27th,  was Kuruvillla's birthday. I will try not to be biased and try to get everyone's birthday updated here (ofcourse minus the year :-)  ).  

Until next week....

Onam Sangamam 2010: Great Team Work !

Onam Sangamam 2010: Great Team Work !

I think the title summarizes our Onam Programs for 2010. First of all thank God for His grace all throughout the program.

This is going to be a very short post. A detailed one may follow with more snaps.

The below photograph summarizes the spirit of participation and participants.

It was team work all the way. Lots of effort were put into direction, production, editing, implementation, practicing of the various programs, buying stuff, pookalam, selling coupons, etc. I am sure everyone enjoyed it to the fullest !

Thanks to all members of the Yuvajana Sakhyam and organizations like Sunday School, Choir etc. for their timely participation.

I am posting just a few photographs now, as there are 180+ to sort through. Will go through it and upload relevant ones later. Please post comments on the photos / events in the whole program so that it refreshes our memories !

More snaps below ..............

Have a great week ahead.
