Dear Friends, 

The annual Ridvan (Riz-wan) Celebration is sponsored by the Baha'is of Fort Wayne.  Ridvan is a twelve-day festival commenorating the announcement of the beginning of the Baha'i Faith by Baha'u'llah, its Prophet and Founder.  "Ridvan"means paradise and is named for the Garden of Ridvan.  It is the most holy Bahá'í festival, and is also referred to as the "Most Great Festival" and the "King of Festivals".

This year we will celebrate Ridvan at Indiana Tech's Andorfer Commons.  The Student Recreation Center offers a fun atmosphere with free bowling alleys, foosball and table tennis tables.  We will have a program featuring music by Vic Chaney and storytelling by Condra Ridley.  We will also get to hear Najah Ridley, Condra's daughter, who is well on her way to creating a great music career of her own!

We will also have a "potluck" sandwich and salad bar.  We will supply buns, rolls, etc. for the sandwiches.  Please add to the "potluck" by bringing sliced deli meats, cheeses, and other goodies for sandwiches.  A large salad will also be provided.  Feel free to bring items you love to add to your salad.  You may also decide to bring a bags of chips, pretzels, etc.,or whatever you would like to share for the Sandwich/Salad Bar.  It should be a lot of fun!

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
