President's Message

Anita and Vivek Nayak

Namaskaru to our OKA family!

It's hard to believe it is already the first week of October! This past month must have been a period of anticipation for many of you with school going kids, but we hope you have now settled into the routine.

Fall is in the air, and it is not only the season of spectacular foliage but also of many festivals...Thanksgiving, Navratri, Halloween and Diwali! Even so, we must not forget that we are still in the midst of a pandemic. Yes, most of us are vaccinated, case counts and death rates are down, but there remains a risk of break-through infection even in the fully-vaccinated. Keeping the safety and well-being of our members in mind, your executive committee has decided that both Navratri and Diwali will be virtual events again this year. Registration for Navratri Utsav on Oct 16th is now open. Please sign up!
