  It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas,
Everywhere you go ....
.
As Christmas approaches, more and more house lights are coming on
each night. Traffic is especially heavy in the evening time. We are seeing
hundreds of shoppers in the malls and stores around the city. Many are
trying to finish their Christmas shopping early. The snow is coming down
in bunches... another 6 inches this week..... and so on.

families and our many friends in Canada and around the world.

We wish everyone good health and happiness in the New Year 2019.
May all of your dreams come true and may you bring peace, love and
happiness to every one in your life.

  Merry Christmas Trini Style
.
- Submitted By Mike Cudjoe
.
I goggled the word Parang. The response I got was 'Parang is a popular folk
music originating in Venezuela and T&T. It was brought to T&T by
Venezuelan and Columbian migrants'.
.
The nice thing about parang is that it was embraced by people of all ethnic
backgrounds and its catchy beat makes you feel good and want to party.
I have pleasant memories around Christmas time enjoying the parang
music. I like the music video below (Parang Song 3) because it has a catchy
beat and all the performers look so happy while they are doing it.

TO MY TRINI FRIENDS AND FAMILIES,
MERRY CHRISTMAS!
TURN UP THE SOUND AND ENJOY.

Thanks From The Manitoba All Fours Association

 The members of the Manitoba All Fours Association would like to extend their
heartfelt gratitude to the past executives for giving us another great year.
.
We would, once again, like to congratulate our President, Mr. Khemraj
Ramnarine, for his great leadership role. We commend him for his continuous
efforts and hard work in promoting the game of All Fours in Winnipeg. 
.
Special thanks to the rest of the past executives Ramesh Maharaj, Sais
Madansingh, Peter Albert and Karl Jaikaransingh for their contributions.
.
Kudos to the members and their wives for the wonderful jobs they did in
helping to organize  the Western Canadian Championship, the Annual Golf
Tournament and Curry-Q.  Your performances were awesome.
.
To our golf participants and sponsors, we say thank you for your love
and support.
We want to give a big thank you to Ken & Beth Mungal for being there for us
at all the games and for taking care of our food and refreshments needs.
You two were fabulous as always. A million thanks to Ken for the use of his
business place (Deen's Diner) for hosting all of our yearly meetings.
.
Again, many thanks to everyone in the MAA. We look forward to working
with the new executive in the near future.
.

.
.
.
.
The MAA will be holding its next meeting in early January 2019. Because
of the hectic schedules, activities and plans for the Christmas season,
many of our members are unable to attend our pre-Christmas meeting.
.
.
*** We are looking at Friday 11th January, 2019 as a tentative date for
our next meeting. We will confirm this date as soon as possible.
.
Team Registration Forms are to be filled out and presented
at the meeting along with your registration fees.
