This year’s Avurudu Ulela took a greater importance as it was held as a part of the 46th anniversary celebrations activity, which followed a very successful family get together and the Annual General Meeting of the Ratmalana Welfare Association. This Avurudu Uthsawaya was graced by the Mayor as the Chief Guest and the Deputy Mayor, Ratmalana Air Force Base Commander and Mount Lavinia Division Senior Superintendent attending as Guests of Honour. The event was widely patronised and all the customary Avurudu games were keenly contested under the relevant age groups. RWA President Air Vice Marshal Ravi Arunthavanathan welcomed all the dignitaries and the members and their families who had gone to a lot of trouble to prepare the children for various events. The Mayor in his address mentioned that although he annually attended many RWA events, the association didn’t trouble him with any requests for help. However, he said he would make it a point to make some form of a gesture in this regard due to the good work being done towards community development. The RWA President thanked the executive committee and organising committee of the event and said he wished to see more people rallying towards the worthy causes espoused by the RWA towards the upliftment of community life.
