By Ras H. Siddiqui

Glimpses of the picnic organized by the Pakistan Association of San Francisco

The Pakistan Association of San Francisco (PASF) held its annual picnic on July 3rd at Lake Elizabeth in Fremont to accomplish a number of things. First amongst them was to hold a Pakistani-American community celebration during America’s Independence Day weekend. Second was to start spreading the word that Pakistan’s Independence Day will be celebrated in San Francisco this year on Sunday, August 14th in front of The Civic Center (just like last year) and not Golden Gate Park. Third was to continue to publicize the coming Human Development Foundation (HDF) Fundraiser to be held in Santa Clara on July 16, 2005 featuring cricket legend Imran Khan. And last but not least to share a meal amongst friends prepared by Mehran Restaurant.
Over a delicious menu of chapli kabab and chicken tikka and nan along with the traditional cake and watermelon (an American favorite), it was great to see that community members had not lost their appetite for either food or lively conversation.
Cricket and volleyball took up most of the afternoon.
PASF’s President Anwer R. Siddiqui, Vice President Inam Choudhary, Treasurer Abdul Latif, Secretary Syed Nusrat, Directors Altaf Bhatti, Aftab Javed, Mohammad Safdar, Mohammad Yaseen, Mohammad Siddiqui, Tariq Choudhery and M. Ramzan Mohammad would like to extend their invitation to all members of the Pakistani-American community in Northern California and their friends to make Pakistan’s Independence Day celebrations in San Francisco on August 14 a huge success.
