This year GOPIO-San Francisco Bay Area joined hands with Indo-American Community Federation to host the annual Unity Dinner at the Hilton Newark/Fremont March 23.
The keynote speaker was Calif. Lieut. Gov. John Garamendi.
The dinner was originally set for January to coincide with the birthday celebration of civil rights leader Martin Luther King. However, since Fremont was celebrating its 50th anniversary, the event was rescheduled for March 24, 2006. It returned to a March date in 2007, organizer said, to avoid any conflict
with other Indo-American organizations holding Republic day celebration in January.
