                             announce that it has come up very well with all the facilities available. We even hosted

                                  In the end, I shall take this opportunity to place on record my deep appreciation for
                             your whole-hearted cooperation and indulgence. We continue to strive hard to excel in
                             our sphere of activities and this will only be possible with your support and
                             cooperation which, I am sure, will continue.
