We arrange every month some lecture programmes to our members to educate them in medical, legal, social and health etc. by calling eminent speakers. We have annual function “” World Elders Day “” when we invite inmates of several old age homes and bring them at our cost to the venue of the function and entertain them thus bringing some cheer to their otherwise monotonous living. We celebrate National functions such as Independence Day and Republic Day. And have annual picnic to our members. Periodically we visit Old age homes with some gifts to the inmates of the ashrams in Mangaluru and out skirts of Mangaluru.
