Our first Community Gathering for Eid in three years was hectic but jolly!! We had love, life and Laughter with brilliant smiles all around. After a month of reflection and self improvement, it was time to welcome the festivity with delicious food and the most delicious dessert table. Looking forward to the party this year!
