Boston,Ordering 25th Anniversary Video & Photo DVDs


    Dear ZAGBA Community, Guests of the 25th Anniversary Gala, Esteemed Mobeds,

    we approach the time when we celebrate thanksgiving, it
    seems appropriate to give a special thanks for the hard work of our
    community over the past year in planning and executing ZAGBA’s 25th
    Anniversary events and projects, and the tremendous dedication of our
    team leaders, project leaders, and volunteers for the Gala Celebration.

    July 25th, 2009 is a date the ZAGBA
    community will be talking about for a long time as we hosted our largest and most ambitious event to date. Children will
    look back and remember how their practices for their many vocal and
    dance performances paid off with colorful musical experiences that were
    enjoyed not just by their parents, but an audience of 250 people! Fashion show participants will
    recall the exquisite outfits they created, borrowed, and modeled for
    the spectacular (and fun!) showcase of traditional clothing.
    Natak performers will
    think back to their weekly rehearsals and revel in the knowledge that
    they put on an GREAT show with characters and lines that continue to be
    imitated and repeated! Mobeds will
    recollect the experience of praying simultaneously with 25 other mobeds
    from all over the northeast and Canada (with only a minor smoke alarm
    incident) setting a record for New England.Technical and talented experts will realize that their expertise and skills helped create a highly professional show.
    Collectors of the
    commemorative silver coin, community cookbook, ZAGBA shirts/fleece
    jackets, and program book will use these as reminders of this special
    time in our community’s history.

    Contributors to
    ZAGBA’s 25th Anniversary Fund will recognize that their generous
    donations will help inspire others and support ZAGBA’s future activities and projects.And readers of Parsiana (Oct 7, 2009) and FEZANA Journal
    (Fall/September 2009) will learn about this very special event through
    articles and photographs.

    who helped make the 25th Anniversary Celebration a success. From the
