Every year we arrange a picnic for our elderly Residents during the month of January. Not being able to find a suitable place for a picnic we were wondering how to go about. It is thanks to a priest who introduced to us the director of the Radiant Resort, Mr Herbert E. Thadathil (Harrys), who was willing to welcome our Residents. The picnic was fixed for February 20th, 2019. The buses were sponsored by Mr Haris, MLA of Bangalore. The buses were there at 8,30 am on 20th February at our gate. The Residents, the Little Sisters and two Associates Jeanne Jugan were ready to leave. By 10 am we were at the Resort. Mr Herbert came to meet us and a big hall was left to our disposal. As soon as we arrived watermelon juice was served to each one. The Residents began to sing and dance to the rhythm of the music. After an hour of entertainment they went around to explore the lieu, the swimming pool, the cottages etc. At 12.30 pm a delicious lunch was served which everyone enjoyed.
After lunch the Residents began to relax here and there amusing themselves. At 3 pm tea and biscuits were served to all. As we left Mr Herbert and his wife Lovely accompanied us to the gate. We thanked them for having given a wonderful day for all of us and we assured our prayers for them. We ask the Lord to bless abundantly all those who made our elderly residents happy on that day.
