On August 7, 2010 The 35th Annual Sri Lanka Day took place in Gardner Field in Denville, New Jersey. Once again, through the tireless efforts of Jay and Therese Liyanage, with some help from their friends (The NYC Sri Lanka Association, Sri Lanka Tristate Community and Denville Township), created a most wonderful Sri Lanka Day. Speeches were made by dignitaries of both the Sri Lanka and Denville Community. A Cricket match was played between Sri Lanka team and Denville team. Delicacies and wares of Sri Lanka were sold. The Sri Lanka Medical Association performed free health screening.

An excerpt from the opening ceremonies of the 35th Sri Lanka Day can be viewed on Denville TV Youtube Channel.
The direct link to the video is;

In the excerpt you can hear the host Jan Liyanage as well as a proclamation by Mayor Ted Hussa and short speech by Congressman Rodney Frelinhuysen. Within several weeks there should be a 30 minute episode of the opening ceremonies aired on Cablevision Public Access as well as uploaded on the Denville TV Vimeo Channel.

Further notice will be posted.
