Be there to relive the Summer Of 69, nay `84 - '89!

MMC 1984 Batch

 

Year 2009 - Silver Jubilee Celebrations!

 

It's 2009 and the Silver Jubilee Year of the Class of '84! To commemorate this landmark event in our lives, we have planned a gala celebration by the beaches of Mahabalipuram and Thailand stretching over one week from 1st to 8th August 2009. Several programs have been planned.

 

Please note the slight modifications in the program modules done on popular request.

 

Program modules:

 

1. PhotoRounds -   MMC visit – 1st August 2009, Saturday

 

2. ActionNest -        Overnight stay program at GRT Temple Bay Beach Resort, Mamallapuram – 1st & 2nd August 2009, Saturday & Sunday

 

3. JingleMingle -      Day program at GRT Temple Bay Beach Resort, Mamallapuram – 2nd August 2009, Sunday

 

4. SlamBang         Medical Tourism and Pilgrimage to Thailand - 2nd to 8th August 2009

 

 

The programs have been structured in distinct modules to facilitate easy payment and also give a choice to those alumni who have time or other constraints.

 

You can choose to attend all or any combination of modules. Alumni may attend any module with or without their families, though everybody would love to meet your dear ones.

 

So start planning and get ready to revisit some of the most exciting moments of our lives and share and rejoice in our life's journey since college.

 

Remember to spread the word around about our Silver Jubilee Celebrations. We have lost touch with some of our classmates and do not have their current contact information. Please inform them or send us their email ids, phone numbers, address or other contact information that you have so that we can invite them to attend and make our meet a fun get-together!

 

Addendum: We have been overwhelmed by the huge response from our friends to attend our August 2009 batch meet; so have the original hotel/ resort gals and guys! As such they (the originally planned resort gals and guys) will not be able to accommodate all of us in the same property and offered to put the "later" registrations into a "near by" resort. Since we were absolutely unhappy with their crazy idea of splitting our batch into two or more fragments (like A-batch, B-batch etc in college - bloody nonsense I say) we are moving the whole program to the fabulous GRT Temple Bay beach resort (see pics below), Mahabs. As such, please note the revised resort/ hotel tariff (between 0 and 10% upward only and definitely offset by the fantastic value additions!) and the name in which the crossed cheques/ Demand Drafts have to be made. Looking forward to the fun times!
