'JULY BREEZE 2014' - A Vintage Social-Pcinic for the Oldie Bens
OBU, ColomboA group of Oldie Bens [60+ years of age] has organised a social picnic, primarily focusing on the 60+ year old Bens.

13th July 2014 has been selected for the inaugural Social-Picnic as it falls on the Sunday after the feast day of St.Benedict which is on 11th July.

This is possibly a world 1st in having an alumni picnic-social dedicated to the over 60s. Another facet of this picnic-social is that it is open for spouses, partners and carers.

July Breeze 2014 is a natural lead into the 150th Anniversary of St.Benedict’s College, being celebrated next year.

OBJECTIVE of 'July Breeze'
An annual Forum for the ‘three score plus ten’ old Bens including the old Bens in their 60s supported by their spouse/partner-carers, to renew friendships, in the last lap of their long tenure and association with college.

“In a spirit of enthusiastic renewal of old and forgotten friendships. … What we have in mind will also serve to bring about similar feelings and assist all those who have lost their friendships over the past 50 odd years to renew their association all over again and at the same time bring some happiness to all......”
