Goans set to mark anniversary

MEMBERS of the Young Goans Club (YGC) will mark its 56th anniversary next weekend during a celebration at the Baan Saeng Thai restaurant auditorium, Adliya.

The event coincides with the feast of the club's patron St Francis Xavier and will take place at 8pm on December 3.

It will feature live music from Bahrain-based cover band the Nightshades, who will present a range of popular tunes and old favourites.

Guests will also have a chance to win spot prizes during the event.

Entry is free to members, but they must collect entry and dinner coupons from the club office at the Konkan Singers Club in Manama from 8.30pm to 9.30pm tonight until Saturday.

Meanwhile, daily Konkani Novena prayer sessions, led by visiting priest Reverend Fr Rico Fernandes, will continue from 6.30pm tonight at the Sacred Heart Church in Manama until December 2.

The prayer sessions precede a Feast Mass offered by the club at 7pm on December 3 at the church's multi-purpose hall. Contact president Francis Correia on 39659539 or vice-president Gerard Fernandes on 39939654 for more information.
