Jai Jinendra,
Dear Sadharmik Brothers and Sisters,
We, the Board of Trustees and Executive Committee would like to thank all of you for making the 38th JCA Mahavir Janma Kalyanak Celebration - a grand success, held last Sunday on May 19, 2019 at the John Bowne High School. Your enthusiasm and energy was very motivating and your presence was felt by us all. We thank you for your support and look forward to your continued participation in future events.
This year, we requested all the JCA members to RSVP by registering to the event through EventBrite. More than 975 people registered for the event, immensely helping JCA Event Management team to plan for the event and food. The program was attended by 1200+ people making it one of the highest attended Mahavir Janma Kalyanak program. We would like to specially recognize all the 250+ Participants, Directors, and the Support Crew, who put up a beautiful medley of dance, drama and artful display, with 11 well choreographed items and 13 other JCA Programs. Participant's ages ranged from 3 year to 50+ year old.
Last year, JCA started a new tradition - JCA Jain Ratna award to recognize, and express gratitude to the leaders of our community who dedicated themselves to establish and flourishing of JCA. Continuing in its second year, it was a profound honor and privilege to recognize five of the founding members of JCA (and their spouses):
Mr. Amul Bhai Shah
Mr. Bacchu Bhai Mehta
Dr. Dilip Bhai Mukhtyar
Mr. Jayendra Bhai B. Shah
