Dear Members and Friends,
First of all, I want to thank you for the great support and encouragement we have received from you. Through the years, Central Florida has grown and so has Gujarati Society, and we have such great diversity in the Gujarati Families—ranging from family backgrounds to their occupational backgrounds. But one thing is common, that we are all Gujarati and dedicated to serving our community and each other.
Gujarati Society has been very active in promoting our culture, music, religion and arts. Over the past 20+ years, the activities and events have culminated into a strong and vibrant Gujarati organization.
I would like to thank our Committee and Trustees for making this year productive for our members. Our year started off with Uttarayan at Barnett Park and the weather was perfect for everyone to enjoy and to fill the sky with kites. We also got the seal-of-approval to host our second visa camp. This event has served so many and we will be doing it again in the future. Gujarati Society also debuted a Cricket Tournament with amazing and talent ladies and gents that participated in the tournament. On the last day, trophies were announced during a family picnic which was enjoyed by so many. We then celebrated Holika at the Shri Lakshminarayan Temple and we had an overwhelming turnout. We then showered the sky in colors during Dhuleti—always a family favorite event! On top of all that, Gujarati Society had a Grand Slam weekend with two back-to-back events that kept us entertained all weekend long. Currently, we are in the midst of Ram Katha with Pujya Shri Nalinanand Giriji Maharaj. His infinite wisdom and melodious voice has mesmerized the community. We are blessed that he is here during this auspicious time. Join us on Sunday, April 14th, as we celebrate Ram Navami with grand flare at the Maa Durga Sai Baba Mandir on Apopka Vineland Rd. Gujarati Society always supports any organization that does good for the community and for our people. Because of the great work that they have done, we have worked with Ekal Vidyalaya, One Hearth, Ronald McDonald House and many, many more. We support and admire that work done by all of these organizations and we hope to continue to work with them and many others.
We are not even half way through the year and we have done so much thanks to our teams and members. We have so much to look forward to.
Back by popular demand, we will have Gujarati Jokes and Dairo by Jagdish Trivedi on April 28th, at the Shri Lakshminaryan Temple. As you can see, we are nowhere near being done for this year. The latter part of this year is going to be filled with fun, laughter and togetherness. We still have our main signature events including Navratri, Diwali Dinner with this year’s theme being Festival of Lights, and everyone’s favorite—Group Dance Competition. These three events symbolize Gujarati Society and our members always look forward to these events. So, if you are not already a member or know someone that is not a member, please sign up now—it is not too late!
Thank you for allowing me to continue to serve you and our society. I want to continue to bring GSCF to new levels and I can only do that with your help. Gujarati Society is here for you and your family. I look forward to the rest of the year, and I hope to see each and every one of you at all of the events.
