President

On behalf of the 2017 GSMN committee, I want to wish you all a happy 2017 and look forward to meeting you all at our events. The team has come up with an exciting range of events to cater for all ages within the Samaj. I am proud to be able to serve the Samaj and excited to grow the community feeling within our Samaj.

We are one of the oldest Indian communities in the Twin Cities as we celebrate over 50 years of a great foundation laid out by Dr. Kalyanji Patel. The intent in 1967 was to bring the Gujarati community together and preserve the culture and heritage of Gujarat. I am proud that to this date we have upheld those core foundations and principles. We will continue to celebrate the rich culture of Gujarat and provide a forum for our members to showcase their rich talents.
2017 will also be a year where we as Gujarati Samaj will reach out to the community and help those that are in need. We need to serve those in the community that have a need for basic food and shelter. We can do this with the commitment from all of you. I have asked the Sports and Youth Committee to lead this charge and make all of us a proud part of the Twin Cities community.
I am sure we will also continue to receive strong support from all of you and encourage you to give us continuous feedback so that we can grow stronger together.
Sincerely Hitesh Patel
President, Gujarati Samaj of Minnesota 2017
