COMBINED SCHOOLS DINNER DANCE-

Subject: COMBINED SCHOOLS DINNER DANCE-

Dear friends,

The envisaged Dinner Dance was planned for June 2018 on the premise that the Band would perform in Vancouver on the final leg of their North American tour as originally scheduled. Peterite Clifford Weerpass(President SLFABC) who took the initiative to communicate with the leader of ‘HEAT’ on an ongoing basis was subsequently informed that their itinerary had been advanced to April.In this backdrop it was nigh impossible to forge ahead with plans to organize the Dance at short notice with the Sinhala and Tamil New Year celebrations(under the aegis of the SLFABC) also on the cards -add to it all in another surprising turnaround it transpired that the requisite Visas for the Band had been declined.

In this scenario we are compelled to think afresh about the possibility of organizing the Dance at a later date sans clashing with the SLFABC Dance scheduled for November 2018.

A sincere “Thank You” to everyone who spontaneously expressed their willingness to come on board when we met at the Thanksgiving Day celebrations hosted by Clifford & Sharon Weerpass in November 2017.” Hope springs eternal” !

Thanks for your tolerance of ground realities -you will be informed if the skyline gets better for our plans !
