Our 2013 Navruz/40th anniversary celebration at North Seattle Community College on March 16, 2013 was a huge success! Over 300 guests attended, including Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and Ellison Center Chair Scott Radnitz. His Excellency Ambassador Ilhom Nematov was unfortunately unable to attend, but he sent this letter in his place.
Guests enjoyed a sit-down Uzbek meal, complete with samsa, baursak, salads, and plov, Central Asian folkdance and music performances, a raffle, and a lively Uzbek fashion show. Afterwards, everyone danced to the Uzbek rhythms of DJ Travis!
Thanks to everyone who volunteered–you helped make the event such a success! See you at next year’s Navruz celebration!
