Special Meeting # 81 – Independence Day Aug 15, 2012

As mentioned earlier, the club celebrated India’s Independence Day as part of meeting # 81.

The dress code for the meeting was : Ethnic Wear!  And we saw different ethnic wear styles.  The one I liked the most was the Indian tricolor dupatta worn with a salwar suit.

This was a high level meeting was 4 Area Officers visiting the Express2Lead TM Club 🙂

The meeting was graced by 2 Area Governors – Govind Pandey, Meenu Maggie,  Asst. Division D Governor – Education & Training Pearl Fernandes and the District 82 Division D Governor Nitin Mehta.

We sincerely thank them again for taking out the time to visit our club.

The meeting minutes have already captured the proceedings of the meeting. So we move forward to the photographs!
Here are all the officers + members + guests! Everybody looks so so happy 🙂

The officers, club members, and guests at the Independence day special meeting!
