Event: Rajans Night with Roshan Pilapitiya
Host: Sammapriya Wanigasundara

Popular Teledrama and movie actor and well known old Rajan Roshan Pilapitiya visited Washington DC with “Balloth Ekka Bee” drama troupe. DC members, Samapriya and Upamali Wanigasundera graciously hosted Roshan at their residence within a very short notice. Thanks are due to everyone who attended, contributed and made the event a success. Hemantha Rathnayake, and Chanaka Rajaguru deserve special thanks, without their swift actions, Roshan would have left DC before we know.

Event: Kamal Dorabawila’s farewell
Host: Hetti (Dharmadasa Hettiarchchi)

On 11th February, DC Chapter held its 5th Chapter get-together. It was organized specifically to bid farewell to Kamal Dorabawila who migrated back to Sri Lanka. Kamal was an exceptionally bright student at school, and played a leading role in getting DAANA to a lively organization. He was instrumental in forming an Old Rajans Rugby 7s team which participated in Annual DC Tag Rugby Sevens tournament.
The occasion was graced by many DC Rajans, which made it a truly wonderful opportunity to wish Kamal, mingle with fellow rajans and also enjoy some good food and lively music. We wish Kamal the very best of luck in all his future endeavors, and gladly wish we will cross paths again.

Host: Kamal Dorabawila

Message from Kamal: “It was indeed wonderful to see so many Rajans and their families here and the maroon and blue t-shirts all over made Kandy and the by gone days seem a little closer. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as we did and hope to see all of you at the next get-together."
I want to extend a special thanks to Chanaka and his wife, Chamini, for coordinating the meeting, setting up the menu and also coming early along with Kauwa to help us set up for the event. Of course, it's all of your participation (and potluck contributions) that made the event a success.
