Dear Member,

This is a reminder that we will celebrating Kali Puja on Friday,
November 10, at Sunnyvale Hindu Temple from 7:00 pm. Our cultural
program will be graced by illustrious folk singer from Kolkata -
Utpalendu Chowdhury and upcoming artist Narayan Bhattacharya. You
are cordially invited to attend puja and the cultural program
following it.

Kali Puja is free for members and patrons. The per-event fees for
non-members at Kali Puja is $25.00 per head. (The previous email
had, by mistake, mentioned this amount to be $15.00. We are sorry
for the confusion.)

A hard-copy mail about the Kali Puja announcement was sent to all
members on Monday. We hope you have all received our invitation by
now.

Please visit our web-site for more information and a schedule.
