Subject: Membership renewal for 2002-2003
Dated: Jul 30, 2002
Dear Member,

Bay Area Prabasi cordially invites you to become a member for the new
fiscal year (2002-2003). Membership begins with our first event, Durga
Puja and ends the day we have our Annual program.

Bay Area Prabasi Inc.- a non profit organization since 1974 - operates
membership affairs predominantly through member's generous donations.
There are numerous benefits of becoming a member. Members will receive
free access to most of the cultural programs during the Durga Puja,
Kali Puja, Saraswati Puja and the Annual Program.  These events alone
encompass 5 to 6 days worth of entertainment programs.  Furthermore,
there will be various special events presented by Prabasi that will be
available to you at a substantially reduced "membership" rate.

Our membership drive for 2002-2003 has now begun after the end of our
financial year. Please renew early to avail the early-bird discounted
membership rates before Sep 15, 2002.
