2010 - 9th Temple Anniversary
Board of Trustees of 'The Hindu Society of Nevada'
The Hindu Society of Nevada just completed the 9th Temple Anniversary Celebrations. Every year we, the Board of Trustees of the Hindu Society of Nevada take this opportunity to provide an update to the Community on the 'State' of the Temple.
Since our Anniversary last year, We have completed the following.
Looking out into the future, there are a couple of projects/tasks that the Board of Trustees is considering:
We are happy to report that at the end of our 9th Temple Anniversary this year, we have a balance of $175,000 in our money market account and $110,000 in our checking account.
Hundi and Pooja collections during this year have been below normal. We have been able to raise funds through special events, sponsor and board of trustee donations.
We thank the members of the executive committee – Alok Pandey, Nitin Modi, Nirmalya Chatterjee, Ram Mallipeddi and Subhash Kamath for organizing the events at the Temple this year.
We also thank all the other volunteers for their service to our Temple – Food (Dilip Shukla), Bal Vihar (Raghu Krishnamurthy and Padmini Subramanyam), Cultural events (Neeru Piplani), Photography (Dilesh Dave), Web Support (Sanjay Palherkar) and Back Office (Mohan Inguva).
We have been very fortunate to have our Panditji with us since the day we opened the doors of this Temple. For the last 9 years, he has taken care of this Temple single handedly - getting the Temple ready for special events through the year, taking special care to change the clothes on the deities for different occasions and many other things.
He has performed these tasks in addition to performing pujas for our every needs – Homes, Offices, Cars, Weddings, etc., During these past 9 years, he has taken little time off so all of us can have a place to offer our Prayers.
A very special thanks to VANIji for all that she does for the Temple.
On a final note, we would like to THANK all of you for supporting the Temple. We look forward to your continued participation in Temple Festivities in the future.
