On enormous positive feedback from community, CAPA will continue its commitment of free Eid Mela for our local Pakistani community in Columbus and surrounding areas.

President of CAPA will be directing the project himself and be overall responsible for the event. He will have a willing team of volunteers and support of the whole CAPA. He will send further announcements for the Eid Mela. Please mark your calendars.

CAPA has always conducted this event with the support of sponsoring host families. This year we are again seeking at least 20 families to finance this event at no profit/loss basis. Several of EC and BOT members have already committed to sponsor this event.

All sponsoring (host) families will be consulted at every step of key decision making. The discussions related to this project will be on an Email group accessible to all host families to keep it transparent. A meeting of the sponsor families will be held tentatively on Friday, July 18. All host families will be informed with the place and time of the meeting.

Thank you for your continuing support and patron ship.
