AGM, Get-together & DC Rugby 7's in Washington DC with A.P. Gunaratne Sir

DAANA AGM & Get-Together was held in Washington DC with Mr. & Mrs. A.P. Gunaratne as the chief guests. Sequence of events began with A.P. Gunarathne arriving in DC, followed by DC Rugby 7's and finally the AGM. Many members had the privilege of meeting A.P. Gunaratne sir after a very long time and mingle with old classmates from years ago. It was indeed a wonderful get-together. All these events didn't happen overnight. Many hours of hard work, discussions and actions of DAANA members helped us make this a memorable event.

DAANA was able to raise funds to award 50 scholarships of Rs.10,000, 5 sports scholarships of Rs. 5000 and 4 undergraduate scholarships of Rs.20,000. This is approximately twice as much scholarships as previous year. We are very grateful to everyone for supporting the scholarship program.
