Happy Diwali
Town of Ashland 2018

Town of Ashland celebrated Diwali on 4th November 2018 at the Corner Spot, one of the most happening places in the town.

The Town recognized the special day by organizing, for the first time, a public event in the downtown. Volunteers from the town adorned the space with colorful lights and decorations creating an Indian festive atmosphere.

The event started in the afternoon with a Rangoli contest (decorations with color powders).

Artworks were displayed through the evening and the public had a chance to vote on their favorite.

State Representative Mr. Jack Lewis, Town Manager Mr. Mike Herbert and town committee members joined the celebrations and shared their thoughts on the town’s appreciation of the Indian community and their culture.
 
The evening festivities began with a rendition of prayer by Suneeta Kaara.

The program continued with singing by children (Balvihar and Harini groups), Vignesh and Harini Darbha and with classical dance performances by Aditi Khare, Trupthi Patil, Janani Ganesh and Dhiya Sudini. The singers , including kids, were well modulated and the dancers were elegant in their presentations.

Rendition of ghazals by Madhavi Marathe was graceful and the performances ended with a Garba/Dandiya dance by Pinal & Group.

Rangoli contest winners (it’s a tie! 1 & 4 from the above) were announced and rewarded for their creativity.

More than 250 community members participated and enjoyed the performances. Delicious food were provided from Bawarchi restaurant in Framingham.

We thank the town, organizers and the volunteers for making this event a grand success.

We are hoping Diwali celebration will continue to be an annual Town event with active community participation and the support from the town administration.
