The Monti Saibinishi Fest 2017, on September 3, 2017, was attended by 200 Members and their families at the premises of KCA, Mumbai.
After the grand success of the first celebration of Monti Fest last year, we once again invite you to attend the celebration of our cultural roots on September 3, this year. Like the last year, the KCA AGM will be held on the same day.
Based on your feedback from last year’s programme, the Cultural and Recreation Team, in conjunction with the Managing Council, has made certain changes, as highlighted in the programme below.
September 3, is the Sunday before the Feast Day, so it was felt that attending the Novena and Mass at Mount Mary’s Church, before the programme, would be a better way to start the celebration. The Bandra Feast rush and heavy traffic is also avoided. Thereafter, we will assemble at the KCA for the MONTHI SAIBINISHI FEST and the KCA AGM.
Having a socially and culturally active Association, as well as having more Members take an active interest in the affairs of the institution – we felt that both objectives are met by having the AGM and Monti Fest celebration on the same day. We hope to see you in large numbers and we are sure that once again, it will be a rewarding day for the entire family. We will do our best to give you a true feeling of being in Kodial on a Feast Day!
