"Members in most clubs of this type, use the meetings generally to further their own business interests. But Trincomalee Rotary Club is an exception," the chief guest Mr. Renganathan said speaking at the installation ceremony.

Mr. Renganathan announced that his bank would donate one hundred thousand rupees to the Trincomalee Rotary Club for its humanitarian projects. He suggested that this money could be used for setting up a chemotherapy unit in the Trincomalee general hospital enabling treatment for cancer patients in their own district instead of travelling to Maharagama cancer hospital in the Western Province several hundred miles away from Trincomalee.

Mr. Gamini Rodrigo gave the keynote address.

Mr.Croos, new President said, "Let us not become complacent with our successes and satisfaction we Rotarians of Trincomalee have cherished through our services to society in the past quarter century but vow to continue with much more vigor to help the people to enjoy better quality life."

Mr.S.Jeyashankar, new Secretary of the club for the ensuing year proposed vote of thanks.
