KAPIT: Some 400 neigh­bour­hood watch com­mit­tee mem­bers here at­tended an ap­pre­ci­a­tion din­ner on Fri­day at the Kapit Civic Cen­tre.

The din­ner was also an early Christ­mas and New Year cel­e­bra­tion.

Na­tional Unity and In­te­gra­tion Depart­ment Kapit of­fi­cer in charge Jen­dri Mangku praised the var­i­ous com­mit­tees for ac­tively or­gan­is­ing var­i­ous so­cial in­ter­ac­tion ac­tiv­i­ties through­out the year to pro­mote un­der­stand­ing and friend­ship in their re­spec­tive neigh­bour­hoods.

She urged them to fur­ther strengthen un­der­stand­ing and friend­ship among one an­other.

“We are liv­ing in a plu­ral so­ci­ety of not less than 27 eth­nic groups.

“De­spite the great di­ver­sity, we are liv­ing in peace and har­mony re­spect­ing each other’s way of liv­ing.

“This is our so­cial prac­tice that must be fur­ther pre­served be­cause this is a fine cul­ture — our way of life here. Kapit is the per­fect ex­am­ple of na­tional unity,” she said.
