Mfantsipim Old Boys Association holds first dinner dance fundraiser in Maryland

The Mfantsipim Old Boys Association (MOBA) gathered in Maryland in the USA on the Memorial Day weekend for a 3-day conference, networking, and fundraiser event in the Diaspora as they sought to positively impact the school, the country and execute projects.

The climax of the 3-day conference which sought to also harness the role of MOBA outside Ghana and particularly in North America was on Saturday, May 27, 2017. At 8 PM that day the event was highlighted by a well-attended maiden Dinner Dance Fundraiser at La Fontaine Bleue in Lanham, Maryland.

Attendees of the event which was chaired by Prof. Robert Yaasi was mostly composed of MOBA boys from 1970 to the 2010 year groups who came from all over the US. Three of old boys came from Canada. There were 6 other attendees who flew to the event from Ghana, notably among those were the MOBA Ebusuapayin; Capt. Paul Forjoe and Mr. Charles Cobbina who is national MOBA organizer in Ghana.

MOBA Ebusuapayin Capt. Paul Forjoe in his message for the event “hoped that it will be an annual event and a recollection of experiences at the school”, he thanked all present, from old boys to others who came from other schools in support of the occasion.

Addresses by speakers to the old boys at the event

Prof. Robert Yaasi, the Chairman of the occasion, in his address debunked the assertion among some members of the public that MOBA is living in old glory. In his remarks, he said “the Mfantsipim Old Boy of today is dynamic, energetic, creative, strong and delivers in every field of endeavor. A very competitive fighter.”

He continued, “We are confident that this is not a flash in the pan, but rather a monumental and promising start at fostering camaraderie, fellowship, and unity among all sons (and daughters) of Mfantsipim, in the United States”.
