Be a Proud Partner of this Worthy Cause!… Hurry Up!

Category: Uncategorizedadmin @ 12:52 pm

There is a great opportunity for all of us to contribute to the ASLGSC Building Expansion Project, which is currently underway, and be a proud partner of this historical event Donations are already flowing in and the target completion date, March 31, 2009, is also fast approaching. Opportunities still exist for us to contribute as the donations pledged so far are not sufficient to complete the project on time.

Just imagine the cozy environment the ASLGSC premises provide us to freely meet and socialize on a regular basis with colleagues with whom we spent the best years of our youth studying in the former socialist countries. Why not we all get together and expand these premises to incorporate more facilities to enjoy our times with our friends and families better? We can be very proud that we are one of the very few associations of its kind to have such a facility of its own to meet and socialize. We need to protect it and improve it. Don’t we?

The total estimated cost of this ambitious project is Rs. 1,200,000 and the floor area to be added through the project is approximately 800 sq. ft. Accordingly, the cost per square foot is Rs. 1,500. ASLGSC welcomes member contributions of any magnitude. A couple of square feet, a few square feet or more…. The Association also plans to list the names of all contributors who make donations sufficient to build ten (10) or more square feet (equivalent of Rs. 15,000 or more), in a special plaque to be displayed permanently in the expanded building.

It is our turn now, ladies and gentlemen, to contribute in whatever way we could and be proud partners of this worthy cause.

Please see the image for a 3-D view of the proposed expansion, which is very pleasing to watch.
