South Asian Heritage Month is an opportunity for us as South Asians to celebrate our heritage and culture and showcase our rich culture with other too.

We very strongly believe that it is most important that our children should never forget their roots and feel proud of South Asian heritage by sharing their culture in school community,friends and neighbours.

We take the opportunity to invite you to our Seventh Annual South Asian Heritage Month with your family, friends and neighbors. Our event is free of charge because we very strongly believed no body should be left out of this important and fun fill celebration.

Yours sincerely,

South Asian Heritage of Hamilton and Region
