Mr. Claudy Monteiro & Mrs. Veena Monteiro offered the traditional PAAN-POD-GOD-UDHAK (Beetle Leaves & Beetle Nuts, Jaggery & Water) to the guests.

Three comedy skits were presented by Mr. Walter Lasrado, Mr. Augustine Soares, Mr. Thomas Pereira, Mrs. Hilda Pereira, Mrs. Sunita Soares and Mrs. Rita D’souza sending peels of laughter among the audience. Eighteen children performed a beautiful group dance and a team of four Konkani Youth Miss Andrea Soares, Asmita Soares, Hezita Pereira and Annarel D’silva had the audience sway to the tune of Aaz Mhozo Ugdas Patim Patim Veta (Down the Memory Lane).
