Chai Latte Anyone?

Chai Latte is a politically incorrect social satire about integration and assimilation of South Asians into Canada. This comedy, performed in ten acts, is a unique opportunity to show interaction between Canadians of all backgrounds, with a gentle and humorous reminder that there is UNITY IN DIVERSITY
Do not miss this rare opportunity to have some fun at our own expense. Head for the Living Arts Centre, 4141 Living Arts Drive, Mississauga on Saturday May 22, 2004

Two shows at 3:00 PM & 6:00 PM (Not recommended for children under 12, and adults without a sense of humour!!) It is being presented under the umbrella of the South Asian Heritage Foundation.

For tickets call:905-306-6000 or toll-free at 1-888-805-8888.

Event: A Marian pilgrimage to Our Lady of Velankani
Organised by Goan Association of NJ

The Goan Association of NJ, Inc. is planning a Marian pilgrimage to Our Lady of Velankani at the Basilica of the National Shrine in Washington, DC on Saturday, May 22. The pilgrimage will include mass, rosary, a tour of the Cathedral and its crypt and the adjoining John Paul II Museum.
Departure by bus will be at 7:30 AM and return by 9 pm from Central New Jersey.
Pick up will also include Delaware residents.
Cost will be $24 per seat if all 49 seats are taken. The bus company needs to know by March 8, 2004.
If you are interested, please send your check to the Goan Association of New Jersey Inc, P.O. Box 335, Cranbury, NJ 08512, by March 1, 2004.
If the required seats to fill one or two buses are not taken, we will still go on the pilgrimage, but car pools will need to be organized. Lunch is available at the Shrine cafeteria or can be brown bagged. If you have never been on this pilgrimage or taken the tours, they are well worth your investment in time and money. So sign up and give your spiritual side a lift.
