Dr. N. Vijayan
Gen. Secretary

Contribution from our colleagues and alumni at USA (Association of Keralavets in North America, AKVNA) helped four students of COVAS in their studies. It was a great success that a financial support of Rs. 12,000/- could be provided each for four students this year (2010-11) . VAAK’s Student Aid Fund programme is aimed at bright veterinary students who are not financially well-off, and are not receiving any Governmental support.

VAAK requests our alumni to contribute generously to SAF to help our young professionals at COVAS. VAAK operates a separate SAF account (A/C No. 67087926942 at SBT Ollukara Branch, IFSC Code SBTR0000210). Your contributions can be transferred to this account and the same may be intimated to Dr. K.

Dear Alumnus,

The office bearers of "VETERINARY COLLEGE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION, KERALA" earnestly request the proud Graduates and Post Graduates of the College of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Mannuthy, to join the Association. If you have already enrolled as member, kindly ignore this request. It is a pity that even though from about 49 batches, nearly 3500 had graduated from your prestigious Alma Mater, only very few had yet joined the Association. Hence those who are yet to join the Association, it is our earnest request to join by paying a total of Rs. 510/- (Rupees five hundred and ten only ) towards admission fee and life membership, to the Treasurer of the Association, Dr. A.M.Chandrasekharan Nair, Professor and Head of the Dept. of Pharmacology, College of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Mannuthy, Trissur, 680651 and become Life Member of VAAK.

You must be very proud to hear that the Association, with the whole hearted support of Veterinarians in India and abroad have taken the initiative to construct a Golden Jubilee Auditorium in the Mannuthy Campus. It has a seating capacity of more than 500.The project cost is about Rs. Thirty-five lakhs excluding furnishings, generator backup, spreading of tiles over the concrete super structure, Audio Visual aids etc, which may come to about Rupees Nine lakhs. Thus, the projects when completed will cost approximately Rs. 44 Lakhs ( Forty four Lakhs ).We admit that even though, the work was entrusted with a semi government organization, M/S.Costford, Trissur, there was unexpected delay in completion of the project. Now, all concreting works are completed and the finishing works are to be completed and we expect the auditorium will be ready in another 3 to 4 months.

Even though we got some money from MLA & M.P. we are short of fund. In this connection, we sincerely acknowledge the liberal contributions from some of our Alumni in United States and other foreign countries including those in Kerala and other states of India We again urge the Alumni to liberally contribute for this noble cause, at the earliest so that the project could be completed immediately. The contributions may please be rushed to the Treasurer in the above address. Cheques and DDs may be made payable to" The Treasurer, Veterinary College Alumni Association, Kerala " At Thrissur.

With Love and Regards,

Dr.P.Vijayan, President, Veterinary College Alumni Association, Kerala.
Dr. K.P. Sreekumar, Secretary, Veterinary College Alumni Association, Kerala
