We would like to thank all of the volunteers for making this Open House a success. We were able to present the most beautiful gift Allah has bestowed upon us, our religion Islam, to our non-Muslim visitors.
We would also like to thank all of our community members who invited their neighbors, colleagues, co-workers to attend this event. And most of all thanks to all who attended the event.
Sr Rabia Sultana of the Women's Committee has the following thank you note for all of the volunteers of the Women's Committee.
I cannot thank enough to all the Women's Committee volunteers who took the lead in getting these items prepared. I would like to make special mention of below sisters for taking the lead:
- Sr Wafa Sarsour - Enab Warak (Grape leaves rolls) and Meat Pies - 500+
- Sr Arita Suwandari - Cheese Cookies and Marble cakes - 500+
- Sr Saida Mohamed - Sambosas (also called Samosas) - 500+
- Sr Salma Haque- Pakodas - 500+
We made about 550 boxes and also used our backup food (rice, chicken, salad, dessert, etc) for another 50+ plates.
The Masala Tea / Chai station lead by Sr. Saida Mohammed was also very busy all three hours.
I would also like to express special thanks to Br. Rashid for purchasing/ delivering / organizing fthe paper products, juice, water, dates, baklawa / dessert and volunteer luncheon.
I would also like to thank all the Women's Committee and other volunteers for helping with packaging of boxes since morning, setting up food items and serving our guests non-stop all the three hours.
Jazakum Allahu Khairan once again! I apologize if I missed someone.
