Executive committee meeting was held on July 17, 1998. Following were the
few important decisions made in that meeting:
1. Mandal will
donate $51 to American Cancer Society in memory of Late Joanna Singh. Mrs.
Singh helped us with establishing and registering the MM chapter and getting
it a tax-exempt non profit organization status. She offered her services
free of cost to us.
2. Recently a
severe cyclone hit the coast of Gujarat and caused large-scale destruction
of life and property. Parts of Rajasthan were also affected by its devastation.
Hindu Jain Temple Trust in Pittsburgh has established a relief fund to
assists the rehabilitation of these cyclone-hit victims in Gujarat and
Rajasthan. Money raised through raffles during the MM Diwali Program will
be donated to this cause. Hindu-Jain Temple is also accepting individual
donations. So, if you would like, please contact them.
Mandal will try to get sponsors for its various programs. If you would
like to sponsor an event or the part of the program, please contact our
treasurer Seema Patkar. Dr. and Mrs. Pandit have decided to sponsor our
Ganesh Chaturthi Program.
4. Mr. and Mrs.
