The CECPC sincerely regrets any inconveniences that may arise out of the change in date; but appeals for the understanding of our teeming members and the general public, in the interest of preparing a solid foundation for a successful Exercise.
The Party wishes you all; as well as members of the public, a peaceful and rewarding Yuletide, and End of Year celebration.
