The Melbourne Book Launch of

The Melbourne Book Launch of "A Heritage Of Song"
at The Grand Hotel

Dear Sir/ Madam,
It is with great pleasure that I invite you on behalf of the Sightfirst2020vision organising committee for this memorable event, presenting

“A HERITAGE OF SONG”
A once in a life time event showcasing famous singers and musicians together under one roof to coincide with the launch of the first ever book featuring the musical journey of 125 musicians.

The event although held in Melbourne recognises each and every one of you and it would be all that more exciting if you could attend and perform on the day.
Unfortunately, as this is a charity event and the funds are very limited it is impossible for us to organise your flights

accommodation etc… but we will really appreciate if you could make yourselves available on the day to grace this great 'once in a lifetime' event.
None of the artists on the bill are been paid for their performance.
Please see the flyer attached and if you can attend we will include you in the
Performance and organise to accommodate you on the show and & include you in the schedule.
Kind Regards,

Derrick Junkeer

Ranaviru Commemoration Ceremony in Sydney

Ranaviru Commemoration Ceremony in Sydney

The Sydney Sri Lankan community gathered  http://elanka.com.au/Ranaviru_Commemoration_Ceremony_in_Sydney-5b-118.htmlon Saturday 16 May at the Crestwood Girl Guides Hall in Baulkham Hills to commemorate the sixth anniversary of the end of the terrorism in Sri Lanka, and to pay homage and tribute to all those brave sons and daughters of Sri Lanka who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of others.

The function was organised by SPUR, NSW with the active support of many Sri Lanka community organisations in NSW. It was attended by the Actg Consul General Mr R. Ratnayake, ex- service personnel resident in Sydney, the President, Australian Federation of Sri Lankan Associations Mr Lal Dassanayake, The President of the of the Sri Lanka Association Dr Ruwan Walpola and Pastor Bernard Dissanayake of the All Nations Christian Congregation.

The function commenced with “Muthuhara Sydney” youth group singing the national anthems of Sri Lanka and Australia.
The President SPUR, NSW Mr Pium Attanayake welcomed the gathering and conducted a minute of silence in memory of all servicemen and women who sacrificed their lives in the three decades of war against separatist terrorism and also of civilian deaths of all ethnic groups.

Thereafter, the opening speech was given by Mr Malin Perera the President of SPUR Youth Group who said the service personnel sacrificed their lives to ensure that all citizens live without the scourge of terrorism hanging over their heads and to preserve the sovereignty and the territorial integrity of Sri Lanka. The valiant young men and women gave their lives in the final stages to save the lives of almost 300,000 civilians held hostage and as a human shield by the terrorist. He said we are eternally grateful for their sacrifices and spending an evening in commemoration was the least anyone could do.
The keynote speech was given by Retired Lt Col Jayantha Weerasinghe who explained the outstanding effort made by local military craftsmen to produce equipment needed for the forces to face the terrorism and brave frontline soldiers. He also explained the pressure faced by servicemen to get back to their families in the few days of leave from duty. However, he said once the political and military leadership was given the environment changed and the forces became highly motivated and these youth were ready to see an end to the terrorist war at whatever sacrifices they had to make.

The Secretary of SPUR, NSW Mr Nimal Liyanage thereafter thanked for the support given by many over two decades to the work of The SPUR of NSW in assistance provided to the injured and disabled servicemen and effected civilians of all ethnic groups. He said that what we are commemorating today is a basic cultural and a religious act of gratitude so close to our own hearts that as a nation we need no fresh education in. It’s as ingrained in us almost a natural instinct, although some now consider spending time on these activities are unnecessary.

He stated that the SPUR continued providing assistance to the newly established rehabilitation hospital ‘Ranaviru Sevana’ in Ragama since the SPUR initiated the project in 1990s. He enumerated some of the funding assistance and projects carried out by the SPUR for the last two decades such as funding and installing the heat pump system for the hydro therapy pool, providing artificial limbs, building special need bathrooms and toilets and wells for the disabled, shipping many container loads of special need beds recovered from Australian hospitals, building community centres in ‘Ranaviru Villages’. SPUR, NSW also sponsored and funded the disabled ‘Ranaviruvo’ musical band for its tour of Australia and New Zealand in all major cities in 2006 and donated 2.5 million rupees from the proceeds to the new prosthetics limb workshop building at Ragama.

Nimal further said that the SPUR NSW continues to fund the educational scholarships for Ranaviru children and invited others also to sponsor scholarships. He also stressed that the disabled Ranaviru families suffer the pain of their injuries on a daily basis and the psychological trauma with their families. He encouraged all to contact and visits their homes whenever in Sri Lanka and spend time with them over a simple cup of tea warmly presented to your hands.

In concluding the meeting, Mr Lalith Attanayake, Vice President of SPUR, NSW delivered the Vote of Thanks to the distinguished guests who are present at the function, the audience for their dedication in regularly attending SPUR functions, the “Muthuhara Sydney” youth group who conducted the national Anthems of Sri Lanka and Australia, Kithsiri Senadeera for the media publicity and all those who contributed to food and refreshments.
