Debate: We are holding this activity for the first time. The debate is open to all children below 15 years. There are two interesting subjects to choose from:
What is Patvotsav?
What does it mean to be a Hindu?
Each child will be have up to 5 minutes to speak on the subject of their choice. Please encourage your child to participate. Our community gathering provides an excellent opportunity to be on the stage. There will be a panel of impartial judges. There will be prizes awarded to two winners.
Cultural program: We invite you and your children to participate in the cultural program. The performance may include singing, dance, jokes, etc.

Please confirm your participation by Saturday, 4/19/03. In view of the short time available to us, we will not be able to take spontaneous entry.
No program can be successful without active participation and solid support from the community members. We are counting on you and look forward to seeing you at Patvotsav on 4/26/03.
