The GCO organized a Social Day for all the Domestic & Low Profile workers on 1st February 2013. The Day was experienced in a very beautiful and touching way when we noticed all the happy faces in large numbers that filled our hearts with love, joy and happiness. When we do least to our brethren we do it unto the LORD. Hence, this goes to all our Goans who have contributed to this event. It attracted a good crowd of almost 160 people. The main concept for having this event was to show our love and concern towards our fellow brothers & sisters. A lot of fun filled activities were held during the course of the day. The day began with a solemn Mass in Konkani celebrated by our Spiritual Director, Rev. Fr. Wilson Rumao whose homily touched the hearts of all present. The Konkani Melodious choir gave more reverence to the Eucharistic Celebration.

Breakfast was provided for all present. An opening prayer was said by Mrs. Sara Fernandes at the start of the event. The GCO President welcomed everyone with a short speech. A talk on First Aid and its importance was given by Dr. Reia D’souza , a Physiotherapist working in the Armed Forces Hospital. Similarly Mr. Herman Estibeiro briefed all on the necessity of Insurance. The GCO sponsored Insurance for 10 people whose names were taken out through lucky draw. Apart from these, there were many other games & dances keeping all of them on their feet. DJ Remy made sure to have everyone on their feet with his lively music. The whole event was very well coordinated by Mr. Clifford Alphonso and supported by all the members. There were a lot of spot prizes distributed. All were led in for Lunch with Mrs. Mathilda Lobo saying a prayer and the Grace before meals. After Lunch, we had an open forum wherein the problems of some of our brothers & sisters were discussed and the GCO members assured them of helping them out to solve their problems. The day concluded with the GCO committee giving gifts to each and everyone present. All the gifts were sponsored by The GCO President Mr. Anthony Goes. All of them had a fantastic time and in return one of the Ladies and the Gent came forward thanking the GCO on behalf of all the Workers. They expressed their joy and gratitude towards the GCO for organizing such a lovely day for them. The GCO members, in return assured them of having more events in the coming months. Our General Secretary Mrs. Shalini Henriques gave the Vote of Thanks thanking each and everyone for their support and whole hearted participation.

The GCO would like to extend their gratitude to each and every member as well as to their Well Wishers who have always supported for all the events and we look forward to your continuous support for all our future events too. We would also like to thank Mr. Godfrey & Corinne O’Hara who gave us some very good gifts that were distributed during the event. God Bess You all and Your Family.

Everything we do in a big or small way to our fellow Goans is always rewarded by GOD ALMIGHTY.
