Dear Prabashi Community Members of Greater Portland Area
Thank You for making Saraswati Puja 2022 a huge success!! We were overwhelmed by the enthusiastic turnout, and we are thankful that the members put on masks and stuck to the COVID protocols. This is just the beginning, and it was so good to see so many new faces as well as familiar folks for an in-person event, as we are getting poised to accept COVID19 as a part of our life. Because of your ardent support, I can disclose that the Saraswati Puja tickets were SOLD OUT – making the event a financial success and allaying our fears that turnout maybe limited due to COVID scare. So once again, a BIG THANK YOU!!
You must have noticed that we have encouraged our members to sign up for our WhatsApp groups with the primary goal to facilitate 2-way communication between the members and the council. So far, the reviews have been positive: our patrons loved the venue and they felt that the food was decently priced yet plentiful in quantity and flavorful. Please give us more feedback through the WhatsApp groups.
The cultural program showcased talents from our local community and the interactive quiz show was fun – credit goes to the relentless effort from our Cultural Team in making our events engaging and variegated!
Also, special mention goes to Saraswati Puja volunteers for allowing a smooth and timely execution. Prabashi’s volunteers are our backbone and I reinforce – Prabashi is by the members and for the members. Our goal is all-inclusivity and turning our events into ‘Parar Pujo’!
We would also like to thank our platinum sponsors
- A1 Residential Mortgage Inc,
- PDXPRIME Realtors,
and our gold sponsors
- Ameriprise Financial
- Desi bites and India Connection
for their support.
Moving on, we will soon accept submissions for our quarterly newsletter ‘Darpan’ to be published in March. We also have Rabindra Jayanti Celebrations in May. Do look out for that announcement as well and start brushing up your Rabindrasangeet/ nritya/ abritti skills!
