News & Announcements
Diwali is usually the most eventful celebration every year and this year it wasn't any less. The CNS gala Diwali Celebration was on the evening of 3rd Nov at the Sringeri Vidhya Bharathi Foundation Hall, Etobicoke. Nearly 130 Nagarathars participated and made the celebration enjoyable.
The annual CNS Pothu Padaippu was held at Subi and Aruna's residence in Mississauga on 13th July 2019. This was the 7th year of CNS Pothu Padaippu.
The Nagarathar Padaippu is an important and integral part of our tradition that has been practiced by our forefathers for generations. This is a Pothu Padaippu, meaning, one for all Nagarathars from different families, villages and temples. In Canada, this event has one family as a main sponsor and the rest of the families pitch in and support. The main sponsorship is done by rotation from year to year on a voluntary basis.
May's bhajan was hosted by Alamelu & Nagarajan.
Thank you all for attending the Mother's Day function on the 11th of May, at the SVBF hall in Etobicoke.
I'm sure all the moms felt a little more appreciated on this day!
It was nice to see over 100 people attend this event.
To start the evening, Kannan Muthiah received a special award for his work with the committee. Please see the 1st edition of Vaanga Pazhagalaam magazine.
Afterwards, several new families to the group came up to introduce themselves.
After this, a fun game was conducted where the audience had to guess the mom from her "baby picture".
Following that, while the moms were busy playing a Pictionary game, the kids along with the dads, made some crowns. I wonder who they were for?
The crowns indeed were for their moms! While wearing a "best mom" sash and crown, each kid and mom walked down the runway!
Finally, we all had a nice dinner. Thanks to all for your contribution.
Please see two sets of wonderful photos here and here.
Thanks to the social committee, and all who helped out and contributed, to make another enjoyable Mother's day event.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Padaippu and Picnic in July!
