The Bengalee Association offers various facilities to its members and associates and to society in general. Let’s know our Association better and utilize the facilities in a proper fashion.
Community Centre and Hospitality
Remembering the dreams cherished by the founders of the Association, we continue to encourage our premises to be used as a community centre in reality. Be it a social gathering or a cultural function, it fits the common man’s requirements with economical relaxation and ownership’s pride.
There are rooms on the 2nd floor for accommodating guests. Perfect hygienic conditions of the toilets and stylish furnishing and sofa with modern upholstery adorn the guest rooms. The members are entitled to use the facilities. Guest rooms are quite popular amongst fresh service holders, tourists looking for economic package, sports personalities and so on. It will be nice to make the best use of our effort.
A cafeteria or ‘Addaghar’ and an exhibition hall are also very much on our agenda. We wish cooperation from all fronts to make it a success.
