My kids went to this school. Even they are now entering or are enrolled in high school, the still look forward to going back to their elementary school and seeing their former teachers, and staff members. This is one of the great community events, and so of course, I have to participate. This is my second year drawing caricatures for the Jamboree, and it was just as successful as the first!
There are birthday parties, then there are BIRTHDAY PARTIES! Armaan's family celebrated his 1oth birthday at the Stockton Memorial Civic Auditorium, in downtown Stockton. I usually reserve this building for large corporate functions, and Armaan's family used it in style. The gathering was easily past the couple of hundreds. Beyond family were invited friends, neighbors, and classmates. Many had never participated in Indian festivities. But when you come to have fun, that is a universal culture.
