This is the Golden Anniversary Year of the KGA. On 23rd July, the KGA organized a get together for seniors after a long break due to covid restrictions. With the theme 'Goldies Go Gaga', the 'goldies' were treated like royalty, from the personal phone calls and text messages to invite us, to the wonderfully crafted games that got us seniors on our feet. With the venue beautifully decorated and a well-selected menu, not forgetting the refreshing glass of beer, every detail had been planned meticulously.

Our compere, Suja Smith's bubbly personality and charming interaction, set the joyful tone for the programme. The team, ably led by Bosco Andrade, were on their feet, ever attentive to the elders' needs. Special mention of the young ones, Nina, Gail, and Gilmour who photographed the event, as well as assisted in serving. The charismatic KGA President, Ian Faria, spent time connecting with members, ensuring that all were having a good time.

The senior members attended in good number, vibrantly dressed in their 'golden' best. They came with canes decorated with gold ribbon (Oscar Menezes), a golden turban (Alfie Santamaria), gold lace and brocade, gold bags and gold shoes. A special sash naming her as 'Ms. Golden', was presented to Diana Tauro. The 'goldies' enthusiastically participated in the games and the march pass, and enjoyed grooving on the dance floor to the music of the 50s and 60s.

Thank you KGA for making us feel so special today and we look forward to the many programmes promised for us, during this Golden Year.
