Support Keeping Palmer-Monroe Community Center Open


I went to Tallahassee City Commission Public meeting today. There I addressed the Mayor and City Commissioners and requested them to consider keeping the Palmer-Monroe Community Center open.

  • It is a good and safe place for young students and kids to hang out
  • Young college students can take part in community events
  • Asian Coalition programs took place there and the center supported our cultural event
  • Keeping kids engaged will save money later since they will not get into trouble

Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park

Wakulla Springs, FL 32327

 With Manoharan family, Vasudevan family and our family organizing a Tamil Sangam Picnic at Wakulla Springs State Park, the turn-out was okay. Since we thought about it only a week ago,  it was the long Labor Day week-end, and a Sunday afternoon many people couldn’t make it.But those assembled set-up the picnic table in one of the covered canopy around Noon. The young ones immediately headed to the water at the Wakulla Springs itself. After swimming for about hour and half most of the people became hungry. We had our lunch.Then we started to play touch-football, volleyball, and finally the quint essential Indian sport, Cricket. Most of the kids participated in the games. Then it was to the waters again. The weather was in lower ninties and there were scatttered clouds but no rain. Finally around  5 PM we started to drive back home. It was a successful picnic.Photos from the picnic can be seen here:
