Naw Ruz Celebration at Ryan's Restaurant, March 20, 2012

On March 20, 2012, the Bahá’ís of Statesboro and their guests celebrated Naw Ruz, the Bahá’í New Year, at Ryan's Restaurant. Please click below for photos of the event.

We enjoyed a Bahá’í new years dinner celebration with 27 adults and 10 children representing diverse nationalities: Mexico, Peru, Brazil, China, India, Turkey, Moldova, Russia, and the USA. We extend special thanks to our singers and musicians who entertained us with inspirational songs: Joe Goldstein, Rosemarie Stallworth-Clark, Tao Yang, Ao Shen, and Mike Czech. At the end of the celebration, we gave away multi-colored balloons and flowers to our guests as mementos of the New Year. The Naw Ruz festival is a joyous time of celebration and hospitality for Bahá’ís around the world. 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
