Subject: Merry Christmas and Saraswati Puja ahead
Dated: Dec 20, 1999
Dear Member,

Prabasi wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year
ahead. We indeed are fortunate to be living at this time to witness
the turn of the millenium (not to mention the awe surrounding Y2K;-).

SARASWATI PUJA
==============
Our Saraswati Puja date has been finalized. It will be held at
Sunnyvale Hindu Temple on Feb 12, 2000.

ELECTIONS
=========
As usual, elections will be held on Saraswati Puja day. There are
7 vacant positions in the Board of Directors. More details will be
posted on our web-page soon. You may also contact Jyotirmoy Ganguly
at (408)246-0285 for details. Forms may be obtained from
http://www.prabasi.org/Administration/DirectorNominationForm.html 
ACCOUNTS
========
Prabasi accounts for year 1998-99 will be published during Saraswati
Puja 2000.

VOLUNTEER INCENTIVE SCHEME
==========================
We are in the process of establishing a volunteer incentive scheme
whereby volunteers (who are also members) would get special
priviledges for working as volunteers. Details will be posted on our
web-page soon. You may register as a volunteer with your choice of
the responsibilities that you wish to undertake. Keep tuned.

GIFTS TO KOLKATA
================
As a gentle reminder, Prabasi's gift Service to Kolkata through
Bengalnet is now offering special gifts for Christmas and New Year's
Eve. Sending a gift to your loved ones home is your next best option
if you cannot be present physically. Your patronization of this
service benefits Prabasi indirectly. Prabasi-Bengalnet Gift service
has the most competetive rates in the industry now and service is
excellent since we stay focused by targeting primarily the Kolkata
area and its close suburbans. Visit: http://www.prabasi.org/Gifts 
Hoping to meet you again during Saraswati Puja.
