22 july # 77th.FOUNDATION DAY observed # Kolkata Press club
Hope you are keeping well.
Kindly accept our heartiest greetings on the occasion of the 77th Foundation Day of Press Club, Kolkata, which is on 22 July 2021.
On this joyous occasion, we remember the Founder Members, all the Club Chiefs, Executive Committee Members of all these years, as we believe that without their valuable contribution, effort and initiative, the Club could not have reached its present position. We also pay our tribute, on this special occasion, to all the Members whom we lost in the recent past.
It is very unfortunate that we are unable to celebrate the Foundation day for two consecutive years. But, we know the reality that no congregation is allowed at present due to covid pandemic. So let us greet each other and also our beloved Club on this auspicious occasion.
Though the Club had to remain closed for most of the time during the past year, the important facilities like Vaccination Camp and Camp for Swastha Sathi could be organised at the Club.
You will also be glad to know that the Commemorative Plaque in memory of the two Martyred Journalists of Kolkata Dipak Banerjee and Surajit Ghoshal, who made supreme sacrifice in the line of duty during Indo Pak war in 1971, could be installed in the Club after 50 years of their death. The Information Minister of Bangladesh Dr. Hasan Mahmood graced the installation ceremony.
However, like last year, this year also the Flag hoisting ceremony will be held on the occasion of the Foundation of the Club at the Club lawn on 22 July 2021 at 10 am observing all covid protocols. Kindly try to join, if you can. However, the fellowship in the evening cannot take place due to covid restrictions over all sorts of congregations. But the Club Bar will remain open as usual as per the present norms.
Let us look forward to better days and celebrations.
We wish you good health.
With warm regards,
Snehasis Sur (President)
Kingshuk Pramanik (Secretary)
