After the visit to Shanti Avedana, members of Lodge and their families had a get-together as a part of the celebration of Universal Brotherhood Day. A prospective member of the Lodge was also invited to the visit to Shanti Avedana and the subsequent get-together to acquaint him with the brethren in the lodge and to give him a feel of the unity and brotherly atmosphere in the Lodge and the activities of the Lodge. Queries and doubts of the prospective member as well as new initiates were set to rest as a result of this interaction. A fellowship and Dinner concluded the day’s proceedings.
