"Go Green" Project



The journey to the "green world" started at 10.00am on 23rd Nov 2011. President Ln. Virumandi & Family, Secretary Ln. M. Shreejawahar & Family, Treasurer Ln. Jayakumar & Family, IPP Ln. Santhanam, Ln. Ramalingam & Family, Ln. Jayapal, Ln. Elango & Ln. Murali started the trip to Cheyyar - a place located about 110 kms from Chennai to contribute their part to the green world. May be the secretary thought the lions need some refreshment before the activity and hence distributed tea & sundal in the van, while travelling. He has organized & sponsored the whole event, including the saplings. In total, about 225 saplings were planted in an area of 1.25 acres, owned by the secretary. He also personally organized homemade lunch for all the lions. After a simple yet tasty homemade food and a little rest, the team drove back to the city with another hot cup of tea on their way back. The trip was more of a family get-together but with a noble purpose! At the end of the trip, a satisfaction of giving something back to the ‘mother earth’ overrode the joy of having fun filled trip.
