Invitation to the Annual Summer Picnic of SLAG – Saturday, August 27, 2022, at Parc Sarasin, le Grand Saconnex. (Palexpo Park)

Dear Members and Friends,

It is that time of year when the Sri Lankan Association in Geneva (SLAG) organizes its annual summer picnic.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to organize a SLAG get-together in 2020 and 2021.  However, this year, SLAG is happy to announce that the annual summer picnic will be held on Saturday, August 27, 2022.

At this year’s picnic, there will be something for the whole family.  There will be some socially distanced activities as well as a cricket match as per tradition, with prizes and surprises for everyone.

As in the past, this year’s summer picnic will be a “potluck” provided by our generous members. SLAG will provide soft drinks and water, cups, plates free of charge and will arrange the BBQ grill equipment. Therefore, we reach out to you to contribute generously to the “potluck” to make the event a success. Please note that bringing a dish for the potluck is not obligatory, and that any assistance in any other form will be most welcome.  The most important thing for us is your participation!
