Young Professional Temple Community (Of The Hindu Temple Society, N.A.) Organizes Its Second “Meet And Greet” Program This Saturday, November 21st, 2015, At 2:30 pm At Saraswati Hall.
Would you like to meet like-minded Hindu adults in the Temple environment? Come out and engage in our dialogue on Hindu traditions and their relevance to the modern day. Get a chance to network with like-minded individuals! Bring along your friends! Don’t miss this opportunity to make new connections!
This is the second “Meet and Greet” program in two years. Last year’s event was a huge success, where we young adults enjoyed ourselves getting together to understand Hinduism, Temple worship, each other and also ourselves. If last year’s program is any indication, this program will be another enjoyable event.
