Dear All
I just want to congratulate each one of us for hosting such a great event.It was every one’s collective effort from pitching in money to clean up, as a result we had a wonderful event for our community.People enjoyed the time and food.
At the same time I would like to forward every one’s condolence to Dr.Shahida Shaikh and her family for the death of her brother.May Allah give them strength to bear the loss.They were in our prayers and the family was missed yesterday.
We missed Nupur/Shabbar and thank him to take care of tasks before he left .We also missed Fatima/Rehan for not being there and wish healthy recovery for their sick child.
It was nice to see everyone having a good time, at the same time I think,all of the host families shared the feeling of happiness by seeing a smile on other’s faces because of their effort.May Allah keep our community together,healthy and happy.Ameen!
I will share the finance report once I get all the expenses.Please let me know the amount of money you spent so that we can finalize the expense report and reimburse the money.Please send /give your receipt to me or Jamshed bhai within the next 1-2 days. All your deposit checks of $400 have been already given to Nabeel Razi (CAPA treasurer).You should get the receipt with left over money (if any) within the next 2-3 weeks.
Thanks to each one of the host families as everyone worked very hard to make it a success.
 We would extend our thanks to all CAPA ececutives who were there to support and help especially Ashraf Sahab from Days inn for boombox,Amjad bhai to get us 3M tape and Nabeel bhai to stay late for some payments.
We would also like to thanks Maliha to help us with poster, Imran Hashmi /Farooq Wirk to take professional photos.
Thank you ALL.
