PARENTS DAY 2019 AT VRT77
Parents Day has been a signature event of VRT 77 for the last 13 years .21st April 2019 , A day dedicated to our parents to take them on a journey showing them what we as Round Table stand for . It is also an opportunity for us tablers to get to know each other’s parents better . A day full of fun , games and entertainment . The theme for this year was “Steeped in Tradition “ giving a traditional look and feel to the entire event .
Sq. Leg Sandeep Chitra who has been the convenor for this event all these years keeps outdoing himself year after year by constantly raising the bar in terms of his meticulous planning and execution ably supported by the hosts Tr. Ameet and Tr .Dr . Varun and Dr. Alekhya and the ladies of 77 who played a huge role in the coordination of the event .
The mold was broken this year in terms of the décor . Munchies were served on a banana leaf and there were flower decorations which made the presentation of the set up very unique .
The program kicked off with the welcome address by Sandeep followed by Chairman Inder who spoke a few words about VRT 77 . Next we had Area Chairman Tr Madhukar Rati who addressed the gathering . The MC Deepti Rati took over the proceedings starting off with the games . The objective of the first game was to bounce a ball off the table and ensure that it falls into a paper glass . The team that achieves the task first is the winner . This game was played for 3 rounds with 3 different combinations of participants like parents , grand parents and grand child , father and son , Mother in law , daughter in law etc .
The first round was played between Shrawan’s Parents , Mr. KL Somani and Mrs . Usha Somani and Dr . Sunita’s parents , Mr. GV Rao and Mrs . Lalitha . The first round was won by Mr. GV Rao and Mrs. Lalitha .
The second round was played by Mr . JP Chowdary (Sandeep Chowdary’s dad) and Twinkler Dhruv and Mr. SK Agarwal ( Rajesh’s dad ) and Twinkler Samyuktha . The round was won by Mr . SK Agarwal and Samyuktha .
The third round was played between Mr. Bhagat Rati and Dushyant and Mrs . Poonam Joshi and Swetha Joshi . The round was won by Mrs . Poonam Joshi and Swyear etha Joshi .
The next game was musical chairs for all the parents . It was a lot of fun . In the end it was Mr . Venkat Reddy ( Dr . Alekha’s father ) who was the winner .
Next on the agenda was the much awaited cultural program by all the twinklers . It kicked off with a classical dance performance where Shivikha and Avni enthralled the audience .
The next performance was by the older twinklers who delivered an energetic performance leaving the audience spellbound by their dance moves . They danced to melodies from yesteryears and then depicted the transition by dancing to a medley from the middle age and then subsequently to the current generation . A rocking performance by the twinklers that totally stole the show with their electrifying dance moves that left the audience cheering loudly .
Next , we played a presentation of all the projects executed by 77 over the years and also the community service activities of the present year and then concluded with a throwback of parents day memories from the past . It feels good to showcase to our parents all the work we have done as a table .
We then had the prize distribution for the games and of course the big group picture with all the tablers , ladies , parents , twinklers and 41ers . After this everyone proceeded for lunch . It was Mrs . Suchitra Yellavarthy’s birthday (Dr, Raghu’s mom ) . It was celebrated with a cake cutting .
The chairman Tr . Inder gave the vote of thanks . He thanked Sq. Leg Sandeep and Rajni , Hosts Tr. Ameet , Dr. Varun and Dr. Alekhya and Deepti for conducting the event , Sangeetha for coordinating the games and dance performances and everyone who worked behind the scenes .
Sq. Leg Sandeep thanked everyone for their support and thanked chairman for giving him the opportunity . All in all , another parents day done with many memories to take back with us .
