Message from our President Benjamin Jeyanathan
Dear Fellow Patrician,
I am privileged and honoured to become the President of St Patrick’s College Jaffna Alumni Association of Ontario, Canada, and I promise to serve the OBA to the best of my ability. I am totally conscious of the fact that I have to possess broad shoulders to lead this ream like the past Presidents. My predecessors have carried the baton with pride and taken the OBA from strength to strength and I hope to carry on that legacy with the support of you and my committee.
I am very proud to have 14 dedicated and talented individuals in the committee and together with all members, we are committed to use our best endeavors to carry out the mission of the association. I hold a strong belief that communication is always the key to grow our Patrician family and through this we will unite all Patrician living in Canada. It is also important for OBA to create and bring value to its members, who will then see the benefits for joining the Association. Not only have we provided members with traditional events like Annual Ball and Christmas Dinner, but we are also seeing strong support on new initiatives like Membership Appreciation night and senior night out. I must give my heartfelt thanks to outgoing President Judenorld Francis, who worked really hard in pursuing our missions that were set.
At the end of the day, we all have common values that we cheer together, fight together, and share the same tears and laughter no matter what we do or where we go. And most importantly, we all shed the same blood that we shall do whatever it takes to safeguard the best interests of our Alma Mater.
Thank you for your continued support
