Dear Member,

Prabasi welcomes you to Durga Puja 2003 starting this Friday October
3rd to Sunday Oct 5th at Chabot College, Hayward. You are welcome to
attend any time during these three days. As always, Protima Darshan is
free for all.

We hope you will enjoy the festivities and also the company of other
like-minded families and friends at the congregation. If you have any
questions about Prabasi, please feel to visit one of our booths where
Prabasi volunteers will be glad to answer your queries.

Food is included in the membership cost for Donor members. Regular
annual members can buy food from caterers on site. Saturday Khichuri
and bhog are included in the membership cost for everyone.

This year, a Dhaaki from Kolkata will perform at our mandap. This is
the first time we will have this opportunity.

Details about the program schedule are available on our web-site at
