New Beginnings – Register for MMD Picnic 2021!

Namaskar Mandali ,

Spring has moved into Summer and before long we will move into a chill again ! The ever changing nature and the passing time wait for no one and we march on as well !
We will begin our first outdoor in person gathering on July 24th with MMD picnic. Following guidelines from the state and CDC we will not require fully vaccinated members to wear masks, but will still require non vaccinated members to wear one for their own safety and safety of others.
We will proceed with caution and at this point are planning to reach out to the schools to look into other programs for the year beginning with Ganapati. Our dhol tasha pathak is actively recruiting and we request members to sign up and join the team for practices.
Marathi Shala recently celebrated graduation of their students in a wonderful celebration at both our Troy and Canton locations. We are ever so grateful to all our Shala Teachers for their tireless efforts for virtual schooling through the pandemic year. Almost all parents have voted in support on in person schooling in 2021 and we will begin to look into our options soon for holding in person classes.
Snehabandh team is working towards our first publication for this year . We look forward to receiving some great literature to publish in the magazine and take the opportunity to thank our Sponsors who play a big part in our success.
We appreciate the support we have received from our members and the patience they have shown while we were in the midst of a pandemic. I am always thankful for the support I get from my executive committee and the volunteers time after time . We promise to proceed with care and caution and work towards bringing some beautiful in person events in the rest of the year.
So it’s time to open your closets and begin to air out those gorgeous sarees and kurtas!
Looking forward to our colorful gatherings filled with laughter and chatter, delicious food and of course Tea !
