by prayer song sung by Mrs. Jisa Philip. The meeting was presided over by Mr. Samkutty George - KNS President. Mr. George Varghese - KNS General Secretary welcomed the audience.

Memento was presented to him unitedly by Mr. Prasad Koshy - KNS Co-Patron & Mr. Mohan Muruppel - KNS Advisory Board Chairman. Vote of thanks was rendered by Mr. Varghese Mathew - KNS Treasurer.

The food sale which included several home-made delicious food items conducted by our lady’s wing escorted by Mrs. Shobha Koshy was a tremendous and victorious effort.

Various committees worked hard for the success of the program under the guidance of Mr. George Varghese - KNS General Secretary & Mr. Bobin Abrahm - General Convener.
