As we start the new year with too many blessings to count, take a moment to think about the people who are not so fortunate and are not blessed with the daily necessities, such as food.
We are requesting our TKA family to help make a difference in our community by donating nonperishable canned foods. These donations will be given to a local charity.  Please help us put smiles on people's faces in this new year.

Dear TKA members,

We thank you for making our recently held picnic a great success!! It was indeed a joy to get out of our daily routine and enjoy some sun and fun with family and friends.

We are coming to you now with another opportunity to socialize, entertain and educate our children about our tradition and culture. 

As all of you are aware, Dasara is Karnataka’s Naada Habba. Among other traditions and pujas, Gombe Habba is  very popular among the people of Karnataka. 

In an effort to recreate this tradition,we are organizing a ‘samoohika Gombe Habba’. The idea here is to get together as a group, bring one small Gombe or an item for display from your house, partake in Lalitha sahasranama, Devisthothras, and finish it up with Arthi and Prasada.

As mentioned earlier, this would also be a very good opportunity to inform our youngsters about this unique and adorable culture of Karnataka.

Interested people can bring in Prasada of your choice if you so desire.

Venue: Vijaya Gowda's Residence
DateSunday October 18th, 2015
Time: Evening 5pm-8pm


Please call or email Vijaya Gowda, Kusuma Basappa with any questions or concerns. 
(Contact information is in the email you received from "Triad Kannada" on 10/14/2015)


Thanks and Regards,
TKA Executive Committee 2015

Saturday, September 19th 

Alzheimer's disease is a disease that can damage one and their loved ones emotionally, financially, mentally, as well as physically. As of today, scientists and researchers are working tirelessly to find an antidote for this. With the budding technological advancements of modern day combined with the growing knowledge acquired through the many studies conducted, soon, there may be a cure to this deadly ailment.
Every year, the cost of caring for patients suffering sums up to be about $604 million globally, excluding the personal expenses families and friends pay for. This amount is far more than the measly $480 million that the government pays the scientists and researchers for Alzheimer's disease research.
Triad Kannada Association is reaching out to each and everyone to participate in this charitable event to help end Alzheimer's disease. Donations can be made online under the Triad Kannada Association team at: http://act.alz.org/site/TR/Walk2015/General?team_id=291692&pg=team&fr_id=7631
With your donations, the world will be one step closer to finding a cure to Alzheimer's disease and saving millions of lives. So please consider donating generously! Also, kindly pass this message on to family and friends.
