We are pleased to announce that this year's Saraswati Puja will be celebrated on Saturday, 27th February at the Pollard Middle School, 200, Harris Ave, Needham, MA 02492.

As always, we encourage children to participate in the cultural program, an essential part of the festivities. In honor of Ma Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge and art, we are seeking children to perform in the open mic section of our cultural program to showcase their singing, reciting, dancing or musical abilities. If you are interested in having your child participate, please email Include their name, age and a brief description of the performance.
