SSESA Lonavla Picnic 2013

DSC06764.jpg

More than 50 Stanislites both young and old came together to enjoy a weekend of fun at the SSESA Ex-students picnic from May 31st to June 1st 2013 in the serenity of St. Stanislaus Villa, Lonavla.

From the moment booking opened for the annual weekend get-away, young and old ex-Stanislites were already there scrambling to get their favorite rooms.

There were games or just chilling, good food and great company as this group of Stanislites re-kindled old friendships and made new ones as this yearly sojourn allowed an opportunity for all to re-connect with nature.

It is unbelievable that even after decades of serving numerous groups, ‘Stanislaus Villa’ still stands warm and welcoming among pristine woods. A breath of fresh air indeed! The flavours of Mumbai, Goa and Lonavala blended in the food, jokes, games, songs, ‘spirits’ and prayer. We had it all, from a swim, bonfire, derby, karaoke, tele-games to plenty of walks, chats, laughter and refreshing rest. Those who were there for the first time were already checking the booking-date for next-year’s picnic.

Thanks to Denzil Rego and family who conducted this years picnic ably supported by Agnelo Netto, Pervez Motafram, Dominic & Sheila Fernandes and Stan & Celine Lewis.

This SSESA sojourn will be savored for a very long time

 this surely does bring

 this surely does bring back memories

mostly of my days in the scouts or trips with the seekers

one of my greatest regrests was not being able to swim in the rock hewn swimming pools or in the canal

those exploits will have to remain the prerogative of my father and uncles

what a time it was - when barometer hill, the twelve apostles, kune missions et al were daily friends

and how wonderful it is to see the legacy alive and flourishing to this day

god bless

Re: New Story in group: SSESA Lonavla Picnic 2013 ( from MO

Thank You !  Thank You !  Thank You !

Its so nostalgic to view these pictures and keep us posted of all whats going on in our Alma Mater.  I used to picnic there at  ' our villa '  before I moved here to Canada.  Can see the place has been updated a lot and looks a lot more beautiful and lively as compared to the days when I used to visit in the 80's and early 90's.

WoW  !  Keep up the good work !

Best  Wishes,

Dennis  Fonseca    :::::
