The newly renovated mess of the Warrant Officers (WO) and Sergeants of the Sri Lanka Army Medical Corps (SLAMC) was re-opened on Wednesday (14) after giving prominence to a series of religious activities.
Repairs and renovations at a cost of Rs 150,000 had been made possible within a short span of two weeks due to generosity of the Warrant Officers, Sergeants and its membership who have immensely contributed to the cause. The mess remained dilapidated and needed repairs for a long time.
To mark the event, an all-night Pirith chanting followed by an alms- giving ceremony for members of the Maha Sangha, the following day was held at the premises with the presence of Senior Officers.
Major General S. Jayaweera, Colonel Commandant of SLAMC took the initiative in this connection.
Major General Nanda Mallawaarachchi, Commander Sri Lanka Army Volunteer Force, Major General (Retd) Dudley Perera, Colonel S.H. Munasinghe, Director Medical Services, Senior Officers and a representative gathering of the Medical Corps' mess attended the event.
