On behalf of Guru Nanak Foundation of America’s board of trustees, I take this opportunity to express my sincerest appreciation for renewing your membership and/or becoming a new member. We are deeply grateful for your support and generosity. There is something to be said about ‘strength in numbers’. Your membership is one of the ways your family continuously stays connected to the GNFA Gurdwara’s growing family.

It is through the support of individual and/or families like you that we are able to continue to strengthen our programs, and to develop new and innovative projects such as our new Gurdwara Sahib building to serve our members.

However, for those who have not renewed their membership yet, please make it your upmost priority to do so as soon as possible. Among many advantages of GNFA Gurdwara’s memberships, the most important is that it is your voice at the time of voting.

Oak Creek Wisconsin Gurdwara Tragedy – Candlelight Vigil and Memorial at GNFA Wednesday August 8, 2012 & Friday August 10, 2012

August 6, 2012

Sangat of Gurudwara Sahib,
Guru Nanak Foundation of America

Respected members,

As you are aware of the tragedy of mass shooting at the Sikh Gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin on Sunday in what law enforcement has described as an act of domestic terrorism. The entire Sikh community, like all Americans, is shocked at this senseless act of violence. This is a sad day for the entire world and we offer our deepest sympathy to the victims’ families. We appreciate the heroic actions of the Oak Creek Wisconsin police officers, who rushed to the Gurdwara to save many lives at the risk of their own.

The management of the GNFA has decided to have a candlelight vigil and Memorial for Peace at the grounds of our Gurdwara Sahib at 12917 Old Columbia Pike, Silver Spring, MD 20904 on Wednesday, August 8, 2012, at 8:00 pm and Friday, August 10, 2012, at 8:00 pm. Please join us on both days. You are requested to inform all your friends and families to attend this candlelight vigil in rememberance of the Oak Creek shooting Victims.

Dr. Arvinder Kaur Uppal
GNFA Chairperson
