Dear Milonee Members,
After more than eighteen long months of continuous upheavals and uncertainties, here we are again with our hearts full of hope ready to host the Milonee 2021 Durga Puja. You will receive the invites via e-vite in the next few days.
Dates: October 16th and 17th
Venue: Jefferson County Fairgrounds (Exhibit Halls) - 15200 W 6th Ave Frontage Rd, Golden, CO 80401
Tickets can be purchased in advance via the Milonee website or by check addressed to ‘Milonee of Colorado’ sent to Souvik Nandi. Please note that the ticket purchase link will close 10 days prior to actual event, October 6th. There will be NO option to buy tickets at the venue. Donations of any amount to Milonee is highly appreciated as well.
This year our cultural program will highlight the best of our local talent. Hopefully, we will be able to welcome our artist friends from across the ponds in the future, when COVID related Visa restrictions are removed.
A few things to note:
As responsible members of the Milonee as well as the larger community, we urge all eligible members to be considerate of all individuals around you and be fully vaccinated prior to your attending the celebrations.
We will follow the required ongoing mask mandate on the given dates, for the respective county. But we urge you to use your best judgement as well, for your safety and others.
COVID has taught us to be patient and be ready for any sudden changes. Our Durga Puja is not untouched by it. Most years, anticipating sudden weather changes in Colorado, all committees have backup dates and plan for Puja on a separate date, usually the following weekend. Unfortunately, we have struggled to get a venue for our Puja this year as well as a backup venue. So, if weather refuses to cooperate with us or COVID decides to mess with our plans, we will have to cancel our plans. Under the circumstances, we will refund your full amount.
We sincerely hope we can all come together as one unified community and celebrate Durga Puja with as much fanfare as allowed.
