Dear community members and friends,
A belated Navroze Mubarak to our community! We hope the new year brings all in our community much happiness, good health, and success in all you undertake.
As we embark on the new year (and a new season), we both look back and forward at the many opportunities we have to come together as a community. One recent example was the amazing community engagement (from all age groups) and presence we saw at the Parliament of World Religions event this past August. Many thanks to all our volunteers and to the organizers who helped make this event so successful.
Now looking to the future, among the highlights on our list of upcoming events will take place on September 23, as we celebrate our ZAMC Dar-e-Mehr’s 40th Anniversary. Though we will be celebrating this year on September 23, our Arbab Rustam Guiv Dar-e-Mehr was actually inaugurated on September 3, 1983 with a Grand Jashan followed by festivities. So September 3rd, 2023 marks the actual 40th Anniversary of ZAMC. Similar to the celebration 40 years ago, this year too on September 23, we will be celebrating with a fun-filled evening with our fellow community members. The registration link for this event is now live (also provided in this newsletter). This is also yet another example of a great event that proudly features the wonderful efforts of our volunteers in our community and the younger generation. We hope to see many of our community members there! While we took special mention of two of our events mentioned above as an example of our community engagement, we want to take this opportunity to thank all our community volunteers and community members who are continually supporting all these amazing efforts for our various programs that are aimed at bringing our community closer together. None of this would be possible without your engagement.
As always, please feel free to reach out to our Board members, or in general at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or ideas you may have.
Hamāzor Hamā Ashō-bēd! May we all be united in strength and righteousness!
Atha Jamyad Yatha Afrinami! May we achieve what we have prayed for.
