Roshan Pilapitiya visited Washington DC


Popular Teledrama and movie actor and well known old Rajan Roshan Pilapitiya visited Washington DC with “Balloth Ekka Bee” drama troupe. DC members, Samapriya and Upamali Wanigasunderagraciously hosted Roshan at their residence within a very short notice. Thanks are due to everyone who attended, contributed and made the event a success. Hemantha Rathnayake, and Chanaka Rajaguru deserve special thanks, without their swift actions, Roshan would have left DC before we know. 

It was also the occasion of welcoming 2 new members to DC area: 1) Professor Stanley Samarasinghe (actually he has been living in DC area for many decades, he had just been captured on DAANA radar), 2) Sethsiri Jayawardena (class of 1993) moved from Califiornia - Welcome aboard Gentlemen !
