The origins of the SLFS goes all the way back to 1971 when three Sri Lankan families who had just migrated to Hamilton from Sri Lanka (Ceylon as it was known then) used to have casual meetings at each others’ houses. Eventually, with the arrival of more Sri Lankan families, the meetings grew and became the basis for a close-knit group of Hamilton-Sri Lankan families.
