MIA banquet a great success
Dear members of the community, Assalamu Alaikum,
MIA wishes you a happy new Islamic year. We ask Allah (swt) to make 1438 a year of peace and success for all.
The MIA held its annual banquet on Saturday October 1 at Victoria Inn and Conference Centre. Alhamdulillah, the banquet was a great success. All tickets were sold out. The attendees included prominent dignitaries such as Minister Rochells Squires, who brought greetings on behalf of the Manitoba government, Mayor Brian Bowman, Mr. Terry Duguid, MP of Winnipeg South, several MLA’s and many others.
Also, at the banquet a special exhibit about Muslim history in Manitoba was launched, in partnership with United Way. The exhibit will be displayed at United Way throughout the month of October, which has been proclaimed by the Manitoba government as Islamic History Month.
We wish to thank all our dignitaries, guests, community members, elders, volunteers and guest speakers who took the time to be with us and show their support.
