The Sikh Women Society has come a long way since 1974 from the first pilgrimage to Hemkunt Sahib to medical camps, Vaisakhi celebrations and various donations to the community. On Sunday 21st September at the Sikh Union Club, the society celebrated their 40th anniversary where they also honored all past Chairwomen. The Guest of Honor was Mr Manjit Singh Brar, the Chief Guest was Mr Ravinder Singh and special guest was Hon Sunjeev Kaur Birdi, MP. The programme’s co-sponsor was Anghiti and it was simple with a few cultural dances by Samrita Group and souvenir gifts to all the main guests and past Chairwomen. There was a lovely heartfelt poem recited in Punjabi by Mrs Kartar Kaur Chadha, which captured the complete 40 years journey of the amazing ladies.
