Join us Saturday, June 25th at 2 p.m. at the McConnell Art Center in Worthington for a fundraiser to benefit End Polio Now.  “Dances of India” will showcase several styles of dance from classical to folk to Bollywood. The students of Nalanda School of Dance, under the direction of Past President CK Satyapria’s wife, Indira, are generously donating their time, hard work and graceful artistry to make this cultural experience possible for our club members and guests.   
 
Proceeds will benefit Rotary’s End Polio Now initiative.
 
Following the program, there will be a Fun & Fellowship dinner hosted (Dutch treat) at TADKA Restaurant, one of the most popular Indian restaurants in the city.  TADKA offers a variety of Indian, as well as Chinese and Thai cuisines, and we are looking forward to trying lots of new flavors and experiences with a little guidance from our Indian friends.  Even if you can’t make the dance event, please join us for fun and fellowship at the restaurant starting at 4:30 p.m.
