Subject: Bengal Month in August 2004
Dated: Jun 04, 2004
Dear Member,

The ICC (Indian Community Center) Milpitas, in their 'Journey through
India' project for the year 2004-2005, are assigning month-long
celebrations to  different states of India. During that month, you can
decorate sections of ICC with special items from your state. Bengal
have been assigned the 'Month of August' as tour heritage month. There
will be a Bengal Day on 29th August when Bengalis will serve Bengali
food, perform Bengali dances and songs and be an ICC host for all
visitors to ICC.

Calling on all Bengalis in the Bay area to unite here in Silicon
Valley. Here's an exceptional chance for the Bengali Community to
introduce to the people of California, the rich and diverse heritage
of Bengali culture.

We need to help to make the ICC Bengali Month a memorable experience
for generations to come. Let us bring forth Bengal's unsurpassed
treasury of art, literature, music, food, clothes and movies and
celebrate it this summer at ICC Milpitas.

We need volunteers to help us. Group leaders in each division will
direct the volunteers.
