Para steps down after 28 years at the helm of BRC

Fairwell Speech

Addressing the Members present, outgoing President Mr. Jayantha Paranathala thanked the Members and Staff of BRC for their support for the last 28 years as the President of Burgher Recreation Club.

He further updated the Membership on various achievements and milestones reached during his tenure. He stated that a number of important projects had commenced during the year 2015 and some are yet to be completed. He envisaged that the balance could be completed in the coming months.

He requested the new Committee to ensure all BRC properties are protected as there were numerous attempts to takeover BRC Grounds to schools in the vicinity. He went on to say that during his tenure he fought many battles to protect BRC and expect the new Committee to follow the same. Also stated that as a responsible institution many Club facilities are provided to surrounding schools and to the general public.

Mr. Paranathala wished BRC, Mr. Rahula Dassenaieke, the new President and incoming Committee the very best and stated that the Committee is in a good environment to direct the Club to a prosperous future by taking maximum advantage of the developed facilities.
