Dated: Apr 04, 2006
Dear Member,

Prabasi is proud to sponsor ‘Bengal Month’ at ICC (Indian Community
Center) in Milpitas for the month of April, 2006.
 
Decorating ICC: We are looking for collages on Bengal’s History,
Famous Bengalis – Entertainment, Literature, Charity, Freedom
Fighters, Religious leaders, Academicians….,  Bengal’s Pujas,  Bengali
Movies, Bengali music etc.
 
The collages must be done on white poster paper - 36" x 48" or more. 
Please do not write very small print and make the artwork or pictures
large and colorful as the collages will be mounted on walls and people
walking down the corridors should be able to read them easily.
 
Only 3 members have emailed me and agreed to make posters.  What about
the rest of you? I know there is superb talent out there. Please talk
to your children and  show them this email. Do come forward and show
the Bay area your child’s creative side.
 
Please email Sushmita Datta at datta99@yahoo.com the following:
1)      Your name or your group’s names and age(s) and
2)      The Topic or Title for your collage.
 
Please drop off your collage by April 10th latest at the ICC, Milpitas
at 555 Los Coches St. Earlier you give us your collages, the longer
will people of the Bay area be able admire your creativity.
 
Bengal Day: On Sunday, April 23rd, ICC will hold ‘Bengal Day’ and all
the collages will be open to public from 11:30 – 5:00 pm. ICC
anticipates about 1000 people during the entire time. We will have
Bengali food available for purchase from a licensed caterer.
 
April 23rd Schedule:
