INVOCATION PRAYER
By Bal-Vikas students
The City of Portage reached out to IACCT to invite community members to offer the invocation prayers for one of their monthly meetings. Sujatha Krishnamurthy, the program coordinator of Bal Vikas, decided to show case a few of Bal Vikas students at the Portage City Hall. On March 14, 2017 a select group of Bal Vikas students, namely Akhila, Samana, Sejal, Sanvi, and Aarna, rendered an invocation prayer, a couple of verses from Bhagwad Gita, and also sang a bhajan in front of the Mayor, Interim Mayor, Council Members of the City of Portage, and meeting attendees. On behalf of IACCT, our special thanks to Poonam Lohmor, Pratima Kotekal, and Sujatha Krishnamurthy for taking the initiative, teaching and rehearsing with the Bal Vikas students. It was a memorable experience for the participants, parents, and teachers alike. Pictures can be seen at following link Link

On behalf of the board and community, we wish Jyoti and family the very best and offer our gratitude for her dedicated service. Jyoti, her husband and family will be leaving for Texas sometimes in the summer of 2017 after school year. Jyoti’s board member term was to expire in December 2017.
