|| Om Shri Ganeshaya Namaha || A Very Happy and Prosperous New year 2022 to you and your families. As we step into the New Year, may Lord Ganesha bless us by clearing out all the obstacles in our life and ushering in Peace, Prosperity, and well-being.
This year, we will be taking an ambitious goal of constructing a new “Yajna Shala”. The current platform on which we perform Yajna needs replacement and a permanent structure will enable us to perform Yajna in a safe and better environment. This project with an estimated budget of $250K was announced in the Gala and received an overwhelming response, helping us reach a milestone of $205K.
Thanks to the generous contributions of all donors. Looking forward for more contributions for the successful completion of the project.
We will also be doing the Sthapana of our new Utsava Murthys, Sri Lakshmi Mata, and Uma Maheswara. The Sthapana details will be announced in the upcoming communication.
Temple Membership is one of the primary sources of funding. Please take this opportunity to get your annual membership / do renew your annual membership ($121) for 2022 at the office OR by calling at (904) 268-7630 OR visit online https://hsnef.org/membership/.
Considering the COVID 19 situation, our temple did reasonably well last year. We were able to complete several temple events successfully whilst following strict COVID 19 guidelines. Big Thanks to our Safety Committee for defining the guidelines and making sure we follow all rules. We also completed adding bumpers in the new car parking facility and Safety boards. We also installed additional safety cameras for the safety of our Temple.
As I look forward to the future and grow our Temple, I encourage each one to be a part of the growth, just not for today, but for the better tomorrow. Our community is growing, only with your collective contribution and participation, it will be possible to achieve the next major milestones for our Temple. Please support our Temple by contributing time, money, and your expertise.
