Subject: Saraswati Puja on February 4
Dated: Jan 03, 2006
Dear Member,

Bay Area Prabasi will be celebrating 2006 Saraswati Puja on Feb 4 at
Sunnyvale Hindu Temple. Your presence will be well appreciated and we
will be looking forward to. We are in the process of working out the
details of the program and will be announced shortly. You will be
notified as soon as the schedule is final. Additionally we will
publish this information on our website with complete updates.

We would also like to inform our members about some changes in our
policies. It has been decided by the Board that anybody willing to
participate in any of our local events will have to fulfill the
following criteria:

    * For solo program, the person will have to be a member of
    Prabasi.
    * For group programs, it is essential that 80% of the group are
    Prabasi members and the rest 20% will be charged $50 (for adults)
    and $25 (for children) per program.

We are also accepting applications for booth for Saraswati Puja. If
you want to book your booth in advance please contact me at 
dolon_das@yahoo.com

We are planning to celebrate this year’s Durga Puja on Sep 30 & Oct 1
weekend at Chabot College. Tentatively we have booked Chabot College
for these dates for Prabasi events. However, we cannot get
confirmation of those two dates for Durga Puja before Feb 2006. Once
we get a confirmation from them, we will let our members know about
the same.

Hope you all have a great year ahead and see you all on Feb 4, 2006.

Sincerely

- Dolon Das
General Secretary
Bay Area Prabasi
