Subject: Welcome letter from Chairman, Prabasi membership renewal
Dated: Aug 17, 2009
Dear Member,

After successfully hosting one of the most memorable NABC events ever,
Prabasi is now gearing up for its 2009-2010 events. Due to your
tremendous effort, support and commitment, we could come out with such
flying colors. I am looking forward to the same level of support from
all our members this fiscal year.

DURGA PUJA
==========

We are glad to announce that this year we will be celebrating Durga
Puja at Chabot College, Hayward on September 26 & 27, 2009.  During
Durga Puja this year, we plan to have more local events than we
usually have. This will give our local talents more opportunity to
present their talent and thereby encourage them to continue
their interest in our cultural heritage. We will have many fun filled
events which will be communicated to you shortly. We will be
putting up the details on our web-site www.prabasi.org.

MEMBERSHIP
==========

I do not need to remind you that Prabsai is a membership-based
organization and it runs primarily on membership fees and donations.
In spite of rising costs of organizing the events, we have kept the
membership dues same as last year which can be found on our web-site
http://www.prabasi.org/membership. 
I urge you to renew your 2009 membership or become a new member. I
would also earnestly request you to become a Patron member, if
possible. This tremendously helps our budget and our ability to plan
in advance for more quality events for your enjoyment. Please see
section below to proceed with your membership renewal.

On a final note, I would like to remind you that Prabasi is your
organization. Your active participation in Prabasi activities is key
to its success.

Wishing you all a very good life with full of happiness, good health
and prosperity.
