Whist Drives organized by the Matharpacady Residents Welfare Association at St. Isabel’s High School hall have completed more than four years. The Whist Drive on “Pan Cake” Tuesday evening, 25th February 2020 was under the leadership of Dennis Baptista and Stanislaus Baptista. The twenty four happy participants were eagerly applying their minds and skills at this enjoyable card game in friendship and cheer, in two sessions of six card games each. Hot tea, Pan Cakes and Biscuits were freely served at the half time break.
Attractive cash prizes were awarded to many winners from the highest to even the lowest scores. The delighted recipients – Mrs. Brenda Texeira and Mr Derrick Valladares, with 94 points each shared the first prize. The prize for the highest score in the first half was awarded to Mrs. Maureen Xavier with 51 points and the prize for the highest score in the second half was awarded to Ms. Joan Nazareth with 48 points. The prize for the lady with the lowest score was shared by Mrs. Irene Nazareth and Mrs. Judith Gore with 69 points each, and the prize for the gent with the lowest score was given to Mr. Joaquim Sequeira (71 points). They all received the gifts to much applause from all the others present.
Mr. Dennis Baptista, thanked the participants and guests for making this a happy memorable function, besides the Trustees & Management of St. Isabel’s High School for the use of their premises. The next Whist Drive would now be held on Tuesday, 10th March 2020 at 6.00 pm. The Welfare Associations purpose is to bring families closer together at these functions, fostering a spirit of friendship and co-operation so as to strengthen and build the Catholic community.
