ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP FOR 2024
As you may know, your annual membership dues are an essential part of operating budget of the temple. Without your membership support, the temple cannot provide ongoing services for everyone. Annual membership dues pay for one calendar year. Please support the temple by mailing a check ($150 for Family Membership; $75 for Single Membership) to temple address below for your annual tax-deductible membership for 2024, as well as donation in any amount to take advantage of possible year-end income-tax deductions. You can also pay membership dues and/or donations to the temple via Paypal by signing on to your Paypal account and sending payment to IACCT@KalamazooTemple.Org or you can pay the payment through the paypal link below.
AN OPPORTUNITY TO OFFER ARCHANA FOR WHOLE YEAR
You can offer Archana for whole year by signing up and donating $201 at one time. Panditji will recite archana for you and seek blessings for the whole family, even if you arenot present. Please provide your name with your gotra, if known, along with $201 to Panditji or at the front desk, and we will provide the information to Panditji ahead of thefestival poojas where we have the archanas. Please note that archana will be recited forthe whole family by reciting SAHA KUTUMBAM instead of reciting allchildren/grandchildren's names. This change will allow temple functions to end atreasonable hours. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
The main events where we have archana at the temple are - New Years Day pooja,Makar Sankranti, MahaShivaratri, Ugadi/Gudhi Padwa, Rama Navami, Ganesh Chaturthi,Anant Chaturdashi, Vijaya Dashmi (Dushehra), Mahalakshmi Pooja at Diwali and possiblyother events.
