‘Test of an organization is the spirit of the performance’ is what the management guru Peter Drucker penned in his famous book titled ‘Management’. This was evidenced at the Soorya Mangallaya – 2017 of Elasto Group held on 23/4/2017 at Gamaini College Ground Bentota.
It was a ‘Gala Do’ repeated over the years; once as the trend setter in 60s and 70s. The event was organized by the HR Dept which usually takes the pivotal role in organizing such event. All the Welfare Committee Members sacrificed bit of their free time to make it a success; above all a memorable one permanently etched to the mind.
The event echoed well with the message given by MR Mangala Gunasekera, the amiable Chairman of the Elasto Group who in fact came in for admiration of every one for bearing the high cost of the event. He articulated the tradition with the hoisting of National flags and company flags.
Events followed in almost in the same sequence as last year but with the exception of adding the contest of MRS Elasto in place of New Year queen.
The event continuing well past the schedule closure time as happened every year however was not seen as the inability to pursue the time table but evinced the high demand for the event and the merry making.
The participation of Elasto members and their families were indeed commendable and worth repeating so it is left for continuation in the year 2018.
