Dear Members and Friends,

We are glad to inform everyone that our first phase of the Audio-Visual Equipment upgrade is now complete as we successfully raised $4500 for the cabling upgrade. We would like to thank all those who have contributed so far and we truly appreciate your gracious contributions.

As previously announced, we introduced the second phase of this fundraising drive by combining the Audio equipment along with the current goal of cabling upgrades. This would total to approximately $8000 and would include the following additional activities -

> Add Control Panel
> Add Control Cabling
> Add Control System

> Replace Amps
> Replace Connectors
> Replace Interconnect Cabling

Our goal for this second stage is to try and raise the remaining $3500 by Sunday, August 31. If both these stages were to be done separately, it would cost us an additional $2400.

We have a basket and envelopes placed on the brown podium in the foyer, where devotees can deposit cash or checks with the description on the envelope indicating it for Audio-Visual (AV) equipment. In addition, you can also make your donation online through our website at When making the donation, please indicate that it is for Audio-Visual equipment.

We try to keep our goal thermometer up to date so you can know the current status of the fundraising drive.

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding this fundraising drive, please contact any member of the managing team by emailing us at

Thank you.
