2. Vanamahotsava Programme
The very first project of our club for the year 2016/2017 was taken up on the 5th of July at Sharada Vidyanilketan Public School. In keeping with this year’s theme of “Year of the Child”, the planting of tree saplings was combined with an awareness programme for children. Three Short films, talks on deforestation and importance of trees were arranged. Children who are grouped into houses were given 25 saplings per group to nurture and grow. Our Interact clubs have been given the responsibility of co-ordinating and inspecting the growth of these saplings over the coming year. The house which has maintained good growth of these saplings will be handed over a citation and a prize.
Rtn. Mahesh Shenoy was the guest speaker and Mangalore Cycling Club was co-sponsor for the event.
