GNFA Cancellation- COVID-19/Coronavirus

All GNFA Activities Will Be Cancelled for 2 Weeks:

Sadh Sangat Ji,

Sat Sri Akal. Please be advised that all GNFA activities will be cancelled for two (2) weeks, starting on Sunday March 15, 2020 until Sunday March 28, 2020. The last diwan will be held on Friday March 13, 2020.

In reaching this decision, the GNFA Management consulted with the Bhai Sahibs, the Board, and several medical professionals in our sangat, among others. The Management also took note of the increased number of cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Maryland, the state of emergency declared in Maryland, the closures of Montgomery County schools, and the cancellation of local activities and programs. In light of this information, we believe that the cancellations of all activities at the Gurdwara Sahib is necessary to protect the health and safety of our Sangat and community, particularly seniors.

Further information on specific GNFA programs is as follows: 

Senior Programs:
GNFA is cancelling all senior programs until further notice. If you or a loved one is a senior in need of langar delivery, a member of the sangat will safely deliver food to you.
