Kannada Koota to Celebrate 35th Anniversary

Nrupathunga Kannada Koota of Atlanta, Georgia is stepping into its 35th year of commencement. The celebrations of this momentous occasion will be held on 20th September 2008, Saturday from 9am to 9 pm, at Southern Polytechnic state University, Marietta, Georgia.
For its 35th anniversary event, NKK, a tax-exempt cultural association and epicenter of Kannada community in Atlanta, in its attempt to promote the language, culture, arts and its heritage has organized various Group songs, dances, classical music and dramas with nearly 80 children and large number of families in active participation. Artists from Karnataka are also invited to the program. Nearly 500 people are expected to attend the event. Along with entertainment, NKK has also arranged for Lunch and Dinner.
The souvenir "Chiguru" which will be released as part of the festivities will surely entertain you with stories from local writers and eminent authors from Karnataka.
NKK has its own library, website (www.atlantakannada.org) and also conducts classes to teach Kannada language. It has established a scholarship fund donated by Drs. Subrahmanya and Annapurna Bhat. A sum of $4000 was awarded, last year, to a graduating high school senior. This amount will be presented every year during the Rajyothsava day, in November. NKK does many charitable donations also both in USA and in Karnataka State, India.
NKK cordially invites all interested to register, participate, contribute, volunteer and attend the celebrations.
