Silver Jubilee Year
The year 1985 marked our Silver Jubilee and celebrated on 17 June 1985. During the year, our club started another club, for the first time, Rotary Club of Adyar inaugurated on 19th February 1985.
A number of activities marked the grand celebration and the major one, RELF’85, Rotary Electrical and Electronics Fair was conducted and resulted in a substantial surplus. The Silver Jubilee celebration was spearheaded by the then President B Gopalaswamy, Secretary R V Rajan, PP A NSrinivasa Rao (Chairman, Silver Jubilee Committee) and Rtn. Imbichammad, Chairman – RELF’85. Every Rotarian and Ann of our club gave their full support in making the Silver Jubilee a great success.
