We’ve crossed another merry Christmas and we’ve said farewell to another year, welcoming 2020 into our lives with hope and faith. On January 19, 2020, a get together was held for the CETAA Trivandrum Chapter at Hotel Prashant. A fabulous evening together with friends like family, like any other get together, this one too had it’s special moments. Kickstarting with a prayer song, this musical evening saw many musical renditions that the audience swayed to. A karaoke set was arranged for the singers of the group to come forward and mesmerize those present at the event. The families of the CETAAT members have always shown an ardent interest during our events. Cultural programmes presented by the family members were showcased during the evening. It is yet another great sign that this community is one that enhances a sense of belongingness.
