150th Anniversary of BCS – OCA Canada get-together

I am enclosing an invite from Sanjay Chadha:

Hi Everyone,
It is my pleasure to invite you all at my place on the 150th anniversary celebration. The summer is behaving as it should and I am very hopeful that we would be able to enjoy the sun and some barbeque.

I am attaching the tentative menu for the evening. I have enclosed the names of the people who have already confirmed the item they would bring with them. Any takers for the highlighted items? Please let me and Jerry know your choice (those who have not selected anything yet) by this Saturday May 23rd.

In case the weather is good I would appreciate if you can carry some camping chairs with you.

As this is an informal gathering please do not hesitate to bring your kids and we will try to keep them busy.
Date: Saturday May 30th 2009.  [Call 647 831 8322 if you need to get in contact].

Please also check the OCA website for everything going on in England and India.
I want to thank Gay Niblett of OCA London England and Ash Virk of OCA Delhi for inviting all of us to the event.
Lastly John Mclaughlin who is in his mid 70’s is driving 6 hours from Michigan just to be with us. Now that is Cottonian spirit.  In true Indo Canadian hospitality our homes are open, our food will be warm and tasty and we will relive and talk about our time at BCS.
For those needing a ride, Prashant will be driving from downtown. I will be from the East, Bogie and Jiwan from the West and Deep from the North. Just get in touch with any one of us and we will gladly offer you a ride.
In true Cottonian spirit “Overcome Evil with Good”
