Last few months have been packed with various events and we would like to thank each and everyone of you for your continuous support and involvement in our events.
We successfully celebrated Mahaveer Swami Nirvana Mahotsav and Diwali at SJM on Sunday November 11th. Along with all religious activities and Nirvana Ladoo, we saw great participation in the Jain Arts Competition by kids and adults alike. We would like to once again thank all participants, organizers and judges for the event as we witnessed some wonderful works of art and creativity.
SJM then presented all the volunteers who support us through out the year with small token of our appreciation. We would like to once again thank all the amazing members who help in smooth functioning at SJM.
Finally we had our AGM at SJM on Sunday November 25th where we presented our financial statement for FY 2017.
