at Hacienda de Guru Ram Das Langar Hall in Española, NM
The Siri Singh Sahib left a legacy which has touched people worldwide. His teachings are spreading and changing lives all over the globe. As Sangats grow across the globe, each community welcomes us with open arms and tremendous hospitality.
Each year many people from our International Sangat make the long trip, on a Yatra to New Mexico, USA for Summer Solstice. Fourteen years ago, Gurubachan Singh and Gurubachan Kaur started hosting an annual dinner at their home to welcome them. As the event grew, it became more than their home and budget could accommodate and so the hosts of this International Welcoming Dinner now include many Sangat members, as well as our businesses and non-profits– All of Us!
In addition to hosting the international community, local officials from Española will be attending the event. We are expecting the Mayor of Española, the City Manager, the Sheriff, the President of the Chamber of Commerce and others. Amazingly, our 3HO family has lived in the Española area now for nearly 5 decades! This is our opportunity to thank the leaders of Española for their service to our community.
We thank our legacy organizations and sangat businesses for joining together to honor our global community. Sikh Dharma International, 3HO, KRI, EWTC (Yogi Tea), Akal Foundation, Sukhmani Jewelry and Soothing Touch are all sponsors of this event.
There is much to do to make this party a success. Local restaurants will cater the meal. A local DJ and Mariachis provide fun music for everyone to enjoy and a bus is hired to bring people who do not have their own vehicles. This International Welcoming Dinner is our opportunity to reciprocate the warmth and smiles our global Sangat share with us when we visit them. We need your help to make this event a success. Please consider making a contribution.
