Apart from 2020 being a leap year, it is even more special that the City of Solon, City Of Twinsburg, City Of Aurora and Village of Reminderville had declared Feb 29th as TANA & NEOTA Day in Northeast Ohio through proclamations. This is a significant achievement and will definitely encourage more events to benefit local communities.

As in the past 3 years, tournament was officially inaugurated by Sam Alonso, Mayor of Village Of Reminderville. As observed by few long time local badminton players, Mayor seems to be picking up few new badminton skills every year.

Majority of the community events conducted by TANA and NEOTA have a strong commitment to raise funds for various causes to support in the local community and in Telugu speaking states of Andhra Pradesh and Telengana in India.

Rythu Kosum is one of the effort by TANA to raise funds to provide protection kits to the farmers who work in agriculture exposed to various chemicals and fertilizers used as part of farming. This effort in Northeast Ohio is well coordinated and promoted by Rama Rao Panguluri, TANA National Coordinator.
