01 Dec MAPS Sign Restoration Ceremony
MAPS is planning a ceremony to restore the vandalized sign on Friday December 9th following our weekly Friday prayers. We would like to extend a heartfelt invitation for you to come and attend the ceremony. We are placing the new sign on an elevated base and we are inviting various leaders of churches, synagogues, non-faith organizations, government offices, etc. to come and place a hand-print on the wet cement of that base during the ceremony. We would like to capture in cement the hand-prints of our friends who have supported us. We want the base of hand-prints to remain a sign of solidarity for posterity.
The agenda of the ceremony on that day is as follows:
12:15 – 1:00PM: Friday Sermon and Prayers by Imam Mohamed Magid from Virginia
01:15 – 1:45PM: Sign restoration ceremony
01:45 – 2:15PM: Social gathering over tea and snacks
Please come and attend the Friday Sermon starting at 12:15PM or feel free to arrive by 1:15PM for the sign restoration ceremony which will be conducted outside on the curb.
