Bollywood Gala Returns in a Big Way!

 

 After the grand success of Magic of R.D. Burman theme event in 2015 and a gap of two years, the annual Bollywood Gala event returned in a big way. The theme this year was Bollywood Romantic Hits. 22 singers mesmerized the audience with their performances of over 55 retro and new songs using the state-of-the-art audio and video setup. We are truly blessed to have such talent within our community.Thanks to all the performers for their continued participation and support to this unique event.

 

 

Yukta Garg Foundation donates $10K - The Centerville Dispatch , Thursday April 5, 2018

Yukta Garg Memorial Foundation gave another $10,000 check to the Washington Township at the event. Mark Metzger and Jill Reid accepted the check on behalf of the Washington Township Trustees. Thanks for your donations and continued support to the annual fundraiser for the benefit of the interests of children in our community.

The check was formally presented to the Fiscal Officer Gary P. Smiga at the Board of Trustee Meeting on April 2, 2018

Here are few excerpts from our speech at the meeting:

It is our honor and privilege to be with you all this evening. It is indeed a very happy occasion for all of us. We can see the butterfly playground that we all worked for. The countless hours put in by all residents, most specifically by the township staff, has take a beautiful form. We see children playing, laughing, smiling and simply chasing butterflies, having a time of their life with one-of-a-kind Butterfly Playground. It is not just the children, the parents, grandparents also gather there with the kids. It has become a place where relationships are formed, friendships are made and a place where the entire community come together to enjoy.

We have no words for our gratitude to the entire Washington Township staff and Trustees for their unconditional and continuous support. There is so much positivity in every individual that we have interacted with, and it is contagious. It motivates us even further. We would also like to say a big thank you to all donors, and the entire community, for their generosity and continuous support. 

At times when our own light goes out, it is rekindled by a spark from another person. Heartfelt thanks to all of the them for the powerful spark.

With deep gratitude for your kindness, compassion, and cooperation, we look forward to continue working with you all.

- Arti and Hemant Garg
