HSNEF Chair Report 2020 Padma Mukund

May Lord Ganesha’s blessings be always with us!

2015 Annual Report
Image Namaste’ It has been a blessing to serve the congregation as the Chair for the year 2020. In this special year, Lord Ganesha was benevolent enough to shower all his blessings by enabling us to develop the facility after years of preparation. We reached a major milestone of the completion of the Car Parking- Phase 1 expansion project. We Inaugurated the new facility on Oct 25th, 2020. As you all know, a few years ago, HSNEF Building and Architecture Com-mittee (BAC) members completed the Masterplan for future development of our property to meet the growing needs of our community. To facilitate this proposed build-out without incur-ring unreasonable financial liability to HSNEF, the improvement was planned to be built out in stages. The first phase included wetland clearing, building new stormwater pond and adding car parking spaces. This year, we moved forward with the execution of the Plan and completed our car parking expansion Project. We now have expanded the facility with 250+ fully lighted parking spaces with a beautiful looking pond with water fountains for our Temple. This was only possible through the immense dedicated efforts of the Building and Architec-ture team members. It wouldn’t also have been possible with-out the community coming together in the past years. A huge thank you to everyone.
