Our Doctor, Dr. Harold Gunatillake Celebrates 90th!  
By Ozlanka Webmaster & well wishers

Birthdays are special to many, but what was so special on the 7th of December at the elegantly decorated Concord Function Centre? This was no ordinary birthday and the person celebrating it was the extraordinary Dr. Harold Gunatillake who turned 90. Attempting to introduce this gentleman with a colossus character to this readership-base is futile; his prolific articles and health columns are regularly featured on this Ozlanka website and several others. He has published over 400 articles on health topics – isn’t that extraordinary? Ironically in his welcome speech the good doctor shared more health tips and hinted on the success of his longevity. Laugher erupted when he said that at his age there is nobody left whom he could call “Uncle”!

Emcee Chitran Duraisamy a longstanding family friend oversaw proceedings with minimal interruptions providing the guests ample opportunity to mix, mingle and dance the night away interspersed with a fine selection of food and beverages on offer. The speeches were great, including the one by the Dean of the Anglican Church which highlighted Dr Harold’s life story and his vast contribution to the community. Talented musicians Ron and Helen Lucas joined forces with maestro Roger Menzies of the Jets fame to present an array of old favourites which saw the dance floor come alive.

A meticulously organised evening, the guests had a thoroughly enjoyable time - a pictorial take of this momentous night is being shared and we wish Dr. Harold and his charming wife Irangani the best of what life has to offer.

Happy 90th Birthday, Harold – We are looking forward to more and more interesting health articles!
