OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Members are once again reminded that as per Government regulations music and all noise levels must be toned down by 10 p.m. at the holiday homes. In the recent past the Lonavala Police have been called in by neighbours to enforce peace and quiet at our Lonavala Holiday Home Priya Sadan.

The Police have now issued a strict warning that there will be no further tolerance and henceforth offenders will be arrested. Hence, particularly as we are a Catholic Society, members are cautioned once again to avoid any such embarrassment.

We have also come to know of some members attempting to bribe the caretaker to turn a blind eye to excess people in a flat at Priya Sadan. Members please note that this act of misconduct will also attract suspension from the membership in the society.

The Annual Thanksgiving Mass cum Social for members and their guests will be held on Sunday 17 January 2010 at 6 p.m. at St. Peters Church, Bandra, followed by a social at The Backyard lawns of St. Stanislaus High School, Bandra. (The same venue as the last social)The Annual Overnight Pilgrimage to Infant Jesus Shrine, Nashik will be held in February, 2010. Details of both the events will be intimated to members in our next circular.

The Office timings of the Society are from 9.30 a. m. to 1.00 p.m. and from 5.30 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. The Office of the Society will remain closed on Sundays and all bank holidays.

In the event of any dispute the decision of the Managing Committee will be final and binding on all members.

With warm regards,

Yours Sincerely,

for The Nasik Catholic Sanatoria Co-operative Society Ltd.
