Naw-Ruz Celebration March 21, 2009

Please click here for photos of our Naw-Ruz celebration held at the China Super Buffet on March 21, 2009.

On March 21, 2009, the Bahais of Statesboro and their guests celebrated Naw Ruz, the Bahai New Year, at the China Super Buffet. There were 37 adults and 8 children representing diverse cultural backgrounds including Mexican, Peruvian, Brazilian, Caribbean, Chinese, Indian, African, African American, and European American. We extend a special thanks to our guest singers and musicians: Rosa San Juan, Laura Gonzales, Erica Angeles, Hilda Gonzales, Maria Rea, and their supporting friends. For Bahais around the world, the Naw Ruz festival is a joyous time of celebration and hospitality. Coinciding with the first day of spring, it signifies spiritual renewal: "O friends! It behoveth you to refresh and revive your souls through the gracious favors which in this Divine, this soul-stirring Springtime are being showered upon you." Bahá'u'lláh
