Hari Om to All SCGCS Members                                                  

We hope all of our members are doing well and are in good health.  Summer is here and we have two exciting programs planned which we hope all of you will participate in.  To start we will have the summer picnic on June 30th (Sunday) at Yorba Regional Park.  SCGCS will provide lunch free of charge to all members who attend. 

We were fortunate enough to be able to reserve camping this year at Lake Cachuma in Santa Barbara CA.  It’s a fantastic location and is limited capacity for both cars and people.  Camping is from Aug 1st (Thur) through the 4th(Sun).  The cost for family of 2 is $200.00 and for a family of 4 is $350.00 Additional details about the outing and the application can be down-loaded from our website, Lake Cachuma Camping Application.  We encourage you to fill out the application ahead of time and make your check payable to “Southern California Gujarati Cultural Society”.  We will also have application available at the picnic on June 30th and picnic will be the 1st day the application will be accepted.  Note : Camping is for Members only

The two events after this will be the Navratri program in Oct and Diwali/New Years dinner in Nov.  Further details for these two events will be provided in our next flyer. View June 2019 Flyer

As always, we are here to serve our members to the best of our abilities, and are truly hoping for greater participation from the members for all of the below events.  If you haven’t provided your email to us please do so, all future communication for these events will be via email.

Namaskar to SCGCS Members

SCGCS Board of Trustees had a brief discussion about the potential of rain in the early AM and the temperature potentially being in high 50s. Due to rain, temp, and wind we have decided to cancel the Holi Celebration. We truly apologize and please pass on this message to all those individuals who may not get a chance to check this website.

Sincerely and with Regrets

Anil Patel (SCGCS President)
