Republic Day Mela 2019

Dear IAGB Members and Supporters,
We look forward to welcoming you all at the IAGB Republic Day Mela 2019 on January 26th, from 1 - 9 pm at the Burlington High School, Burlington, MA.  In an effort to do our part for the environment, IAGB decided to go green this year with our brochure. Attached is the eBrochure that you can now review at any time! Copies of the program flow will be available at the registration desk.  There will be several exhibitors and vendors seeking an opportunity to interact with you. Please join us in supporting our local vendors and exhibitors. Delicious snacks will be available through the afternoon and dinner will be brought to us by Godavari.   Once again, we thank our our platinum sponsor, Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare and our gold sponsors, Pranav Gill of BMW Sudbury and Jobiak, Inc.
