Welcome to Gujarati Samaj


Greetings from the Executive Committee and the Volunteers of the Gujarati Samaj of Baltimore. I hope you had a great summer.

I start my message with great sadness about the passing of Mr.Ambalal (also known as Ambubhai) Trikamlal Patel. He was a Past President of the Gujarati Samaj of Baltimore. He was a great resource to the Samaj and helped us build it up to where we stand today! We will miss Ambubhai. He passed away on Friday, August 18, 2017 at 3 pm. He was surrounded by his family and left us peacefully. He is survived by his wife Saraswatiben (also known as Shashiben) Ambalal Patel, daughter Chhaya Patel Shah and son Sanjay Ambalal Patel. We express our deepest condolences to the family.

Thank you for your participation at our picnic in July. We had a good turnout and everyone liked Centennial Park Pavilion H. Plenty of delicious food was enjoyed by everyone. We would like to thank our caterer Rangoli for delicious food. We had our Yatra to Balaji Temple on August 27, 2017. Everyone who attended was very pleased with all the arrangements.

We have planned some wonderful events that are coming up. It is time for us to celebrate Navratri and Diwali. The Gujarati Samaj of Baltimore wishes you and your family a very happy, healthy, peaceful and enjoyable Navratri, Diwali and a New Year.

We start our "Grand Navratri Dandiya Program" with Ashiq Orchestra with various artists from India on September 16, 2017, followed by Swaraanjali Group Deeti & Krushanu Majmunder on September 23, Arpan Group on September 30, and Kaushik Deshpande’s Group from India on October 7, 2017. For donations to Garba, Aarti and Prasad or sponsorship of any items, please contact any committee member. Tickets will be available for purchase with members and nonmembers price at the gate. Please note members will be able to purchase up to six (6) tickets at the discount rate. We encourage you to come early to use Complex parking facilities.

We also are very excited to bring you an excellent Diwali Program on October 28, 2017 at the New Town High School. It will include a delicious Gujarati dinner followed by a music program by Omkara Group artists from India. Please do not miss this music program and you will get an opportunity to spend some time with your friends in this festive Diwali season.
