Meet And Greet With Ashland Town Officials

Ranjani Saigal
07/01/2016

Radha and K.G Narayana from Ashland, MA hosted a unique meet and greet event on Jun 26 at their home in Ashland. It was a unique event,  where community members, particularly the Indian Americans from Ashland had a chance to meet with the town officials and the Senator Karen Spilka, State representative Tom Sannicandro.   

“I have been involved in the town activities and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I felt it was important for Indian Americans in the town to get to know the town officials and contribute their time to support the town” said Narayana. 

The town of Ashland already has a few Indian Americans who are involved in the cultural council and other areas. There were a wide variety of opportunities presented. This includes special committees like the one on water resources, sustainability and others. The committees that make decision about a variety of town activities that affects homeowners is often volunteer run. Members of the School committee were also present. 

Karen Spilka, the State Senator  urged everyone to take an active role in the town activities. For many in the room it was an excellent way to connect with the Ashland community and for the town officials it was a good way to get to know the local Indian American community.

This model of “ meet and greet” was a low effort initiative that was very impactful. Perhaps this model could be considered by other towns as way to get to know their town.
