We need to expend about Rs. 25,000 on administrative arrangements such as hiring of shamiana, chairs, PA equipment, light refreshments, purchase of flowers, wreaths, and candles, printing and distribution of publicity material and invites etc. We need to raise the finances ourselves through contributions from the ex-servicemen. So far, we have raised about Rs. 7,500 from the Core Group at Panchkula. We shall be grateful to our members, and interested citizens whether members, or ex-servicemen or not, for their contributions toward the commemoration events.
