Annual Diwali Cultural Program 2016................................................Vinay Vyas
ISW held its Annual Diwali Cultural Show on November 12 at the Sherwood Middle School in Shrewsbury, MA. It was extremely entertaining event focusing on Indian culture. The extent of our Indian culture was more than adequately depicted via 50 dance and singing performances. Participants ranged from 3 year old to over 50 years - yes we have a huge group of talented performers within our ISW reach. An overwhelming response on performance requests needed us to extend the event time by an hour! We are happy that we were able to accommodate every request.
Besides the entertaining cultural show, ISW Diwali show also features our youth who are awarded scholarships for Academic Achievements and Citizenship Achievements. This year’s winners are Aditya Hoque and Tanya Walia for Academic; Pooja Hingorany and Sakshi Gera for Citizenship.
We had sumptuous food served by Aunty G's from Marlborough, MA. An array of spicy and sweet Indian food items were available. In addition we had local vendors displaying their services and goods.
ISW also had its yearly tradition of partnering with the Celtics - we will be celebrating India day with the Celtics on December 2. A large group of ISW families will attend the game and our performers will entertain the spectators pre-game as well as at half-time. A Celtics representative was present with the NBA championship trophy creating an excellent picture opportunity.
ISW is 100% volunteer driven and thanks each and every volunteer who helped us with this and every event we hold. We are looking forward to you joining us for the Celtics game and for the Christmas Celebrations.
