We had a fun filled evening on Friday Aug 26th. We at Janyaa would like to thank all of our friends and supporters who attended the event and made it a great success. A big thank you to all of the volunteers, many of whom had to directly come from work through the crazy Friday evening traffic, esp. Kaushik, Amit, Usha, Rama Dasu,Venu and Kranthi.

We started off with Dumb Charades and Antakshari which turned out to be a lot of fun. Everyone participated in the games with enthusiasm!!It was followed by a delicious dinner and dancing.

Thank You Pavan Nichenametla for sponsoring all of the food!!

Hema Reddy –  Thank you for being our official photographer . We are looking forward to seeing our pictures through your camera.

Special thanks to the following volunteers:

Amit did an excellent job with hosting of Antakshari and also as our DJ. We had a great time dancing away and it was a lot of fun!!

Kranthi – thank you for the announcements and hosting Antakshari along with Amit, with great enthusiasm.

Rama Dasu and Kaushik – Thanks for help with the signs and set up of materials, picking up food, signing up guests at the registration and helping with wrapping up everything at the end of the event.

Ila & her Mom, and Rama – Great help at the Registration desk. We appreciate you being at the entrance while other volunteers could completely focus on conducting the program smoothly. Thank You!

Gayatri – Great job on starting the event with Dumb Charades and Antakshari; hosting and conducting it so beautifully. We also thank you for making a yummy dessert – Badam Halwa. It was excellent.

Usha, Venu and anyone whom I may have missed–  thank you for your support on the back end of organizing this event and making it happen. Of course Venu is a great motivator and inspiration for all that we do.

We would also like to thank Harini at TIE. She was in constant communication, in case we needed help on the audio systems or projectors etc. In spite of being off for the weekend and having personal plans on Friday evening, she made sure that she was accessible, if any assistance was needed, as this was our first time at the venue.

I enjoy being a part of Janyaa and love to do whatever I can in helping out. I had a great time! (Sharmila here!!)

Everyone loved the venue, and we are planning to host a monthly event at this venue. If you have any suggestions or comments, please feel free to post it on our Facebook page. We would love to get your feedback.
