We had Avurudu celebrations in two villages. It was held on the 15th of April, for the elders in Berathuduwa and Thilakagama villages. About 55 elders and their family members participated, organized by those who attend the Berathuduwa activity sessions and myself. We had fourteen New Year games and the winners got gifts.
The elders performed an Avurudhu dance, previously rehearsed. The Elder Rights promotion officer attended the function and not only commended us on the program but also helped out in conducting the Avurudhu games. The Balamandalaya Treasurer helped out with the announcements.
It was a great day to all the elders as they enjoyed the program.
