The Discover Sri Lanka is an annual program for our children to learn their heritage in a fun an exciting manner. All of us who are far from Sri Lanka are naturally challenged to share the traditions and the exciting elements of our culture with our next generation. Discover Sri Lanka is an event designed by the younger leaders in our Sri Lankan community for the younger Sri Lankan community. Your children’s participation will not only help them learn about Sri Lanka, but also expose them and inspire them towards the fine leadership skills of our youth who are taking the lead in pulling this nice event together.
SLANE Winter Ball 2019 was held on February 9, 2019 at the DoubleTree Hilton in Westborough, MA.
