On Saturday 26th August, 2017, the Rotary Club of Princes Town hosted its 24th Annual Chokha Fest at the grounds of the picturesque San Fernando Hill. 
Patrons enjoyed a variety of tasty traditional East Indian choka dishes accompanied with hot sada roti (prepared and cooked on-site), fry bake and pepper roti served by Rotarians, their Partners-In-Service, potential Rotarians and friends of the Club.
On the menu were sixteen (16) varieties of Chokas including fig choka, eddoes, buljol, ochro, sikeire fig and saltfish, tomatoes and pumpkin chokas, just to name a few. Patrons also enjoyed the all popular Pepper Station which consisted of spicy relishes such as Mother-In-Law, Coconut Chutney, Murtani and Kutchela prepared by the Club’s in-house pepper connoisseurs, Rotarian Curtis Dass and Partner –in- Service, Yvette Dass.  Dinner was complemented by mouth-watering sweet rice as dessert which was prepared and served by Rotarian Jamir Ousman.
Patrons danced the evening away to the live entertainment of the very versatile ‘Samsara D Band’ and melodious performances on pan by child of Rotary, Kyle Ali.  The proceeds generated from this venture will be devoted to the Club’s scholarship program where deserving students pursuing tertiary education are awarded. Our Scholarship Awards Ceremony is scheduled for 22nd November, 2017.
The Rotary Club of Princes Town extends sincere thanks and gratitude to all those persons who purchased tickets and came to the event to fellowship with us and enjoy great food, non-stop entertainment and the wonderful ambience on the Hill and looks forward to your continued support in Making a Difference in our local community.
