Hello Narinder ji,
It was pleasure seeing you, Manjit and the rest of the members in the virtual video.
It was so surreal it took sometime to digest to see everyone . It brought some wonderful memories back of the caring club we formed.
I miss being there, but the video is the next best thing, being amongst you.
Thank you very much to you and Madhvi for making this work. The seniors do appreciate the interaction and I for sure do. Thank you for having me after a loooong time.
May 6th, 2020
You and Madhvi did a wonderful job for our Virtual Meeting today. We had over 60 members. It was a bit noisy as lot of members do not know how this virtual thing work but it will get better. Keep up the fantastic work you do and we are proud of you.

Dear Mr. Dhuga:
Congratulations to your personally and the entire management team of the club who assisted in making the function the great success it was.
Kudos to Dhuga ji for bringing together such a diverse group of different associations under one roof. A tremendous effort, one we hope will help our various groups to drop what separates us and concentrate on the myriad things we share in common. There is strength in numbers.
Well done Sir, we salute you
Enjoy your success. We are very proud to be part of Sahara Senior Services. God Bless you and Manjit with many, many years of togetherness. This world needs people like you!

Hi Narinder ji,
Thanks for an amazing Multicultural Day Celebrations and always planning such fun events for us.
It was really wonderful, colourful multicultural show, very thoughtfully organised by Sahara Senior Services. We really enjoyed it very much. All credit goes to Narenderaji and his hard working team. Every item and the speeches gave us idea about different cultures living together peacefully in Canada. Looking forward to such shows in future.

Hello Narinder ji,
We would like to congratulate you and your entire team for organizing a very successful Canada 🇨🇦 150 celebration.
The whole event went very smoothly. We had excellent food and snacks. It was the hard work of the committee members which included people like Arun and Krishan bringing food items and people working in the kitchen and Front table welcoming our members and guests. Yourself bringing the club banners and Canada memorabilia added to the event and many others who worked behind the scenes.
The performances and speeches were great and within the time frame.
Let's hope to have a fabulous celebration of our club's next function of Diwali in November
With best wishes and regards

Thank you for organizing such a wonderful Picnic at Niagara on the Lake. There was a lot of thought and work was involved. You worked very hard and I have no words for your patience and care.
Yesterday's picnic was wonderful and very enjoyable. Everything was perfect and very carefully planned. To plan such an event for that many people is a challenge in itself and you took care of every little detail.
Our heartfelt thank you to you and your team.

Dear Narinder ji
Our heartiest congratulations to you for achieving this goal. It is because of you and your team that our club will be able to fulfill our goal of computer classes and some other activities.
JOB WELL DONE ..!!!
Narinder you deserve all the credit. Hope we will do all the best with this grant money. Importance should be given-- use of Facebook, Email, YouTube+ encourage the members to learn it..
I will be there with tea and snacks. I will be learning too, a student as well. Congratulations to all.
Good Morning Narinder Ji
What an achievement. Getting a grant is great news. Thanks for letting me know.
Please accept my heartiest congratulations to you & other team members who worked very hard to get this grant. We are missing our Sahara Senior Services family.
Hello Narinder ji,
Congratulations for our big achievement. Our members will benefit a lot by learning the latest computer technologies. We are proud to be associated with you. Please take care
CONGRATULATIONS!!! Well done SSS for, getting the grant to teach computer to our members. It is great day for our association. We have matured.
We are writing to thank Sahara Senior Services for the generous donation of food that the club gave to support the work of The Open Door on November 5th. It came at such a needy time and is so much appreciated.
I do apologize for the delay in responding to your generosity; however we are short staffed at the moment and several of our key volunteers are off with serious illnesses.
We are in the process of preparing Christmas dinner and gifts for nearly 300 people who would otherwise have very little hope of having a happy Christmas. As well, we hope to have a luncheon for another 75 - 100. These are from requests of over 800 people so require a great deal of time processing.
As you can see, there are a great many people who are in need and you are helping to fill that need thru your donation. It is very much appreciated.
God bless you, Sahara Senior Services members and may you have a very happy Christmas.
THE OPEN DOOR
Mr. Narinder Dhuga

Hello Narinder ji and Renu ji,
Another amazing trip to Falls View Casino. Wow! Thank you Renu ji for organizing such a fantastic trip. We came back with some big winners as well. Not too many trips can claim that.Thanks to all the members who entertained us.
Also a big thank you to the travel committee.Looking forward to another trip to some unchartered territory.
Thank you for organizing the picnic , the place was very nice , the cultural programme was excellent The food was out of this world Thanks to the travel committee and everyone participating!!
Hello Narinder ji and members of our club,
The picnic organizing committee under the leadership of Renu ji and her colleagues need to be congratulated for hosting the picnic. A job well done. Every one had a good time even though it was one of the hottest days of summer so far.
I think making the pakoras at the park was a big hit and having "the Redolent girls" make the tea and cut the watermelon was a good idea. A big kudos to the organizing committee.
Renu ji thank you for cooking a beautiful meal for one of our members you could eat the regular food.
Good morning Narinder
A big congratulations to you for organizing such a successful opening ceremony of our club yesterday. It was a great event and apart from your hard work there was lot of active participation from so many of our members in preparing food and getting the tea and food etc set up on the tables for our guests and members. The work of our Nashta/recreation committee is admirable. The most memorable part of this event is having the presence of so many dignitaries and special guests. The credit goes to you not only for inviting them but also having so much influence that they accepted it and came to join us. Of course the highlight of our celebration was attendance of Counsul General Akhilesh Mishra and his good natured personality and him mingling and shaking hands with all our members and posing for pictures etc. All of us are very proud to be members of this great club full of very talented people and great management team.
Thanks again for all your hard work.
Ashok and Monica Bharti
Hello Dhuga Sahib,
