North American Zarathushti Congress
Houston, Texas,   December 2010
Attached is the May Newsletter of the NAZC 2010 to be held in Houston from December 29 to December 31.


The three-day events will showcase our theme, preserve the past, protect the present, and perfect the future.  Other Program items will include sessions on our social and cultural heritage, religious development and history.  In addition, we will discuss issues of interest to our youth, women, and families. The Program and Entertainment Committees are at work to ensure participants will have a rich and rewarding experience, long after the events are over. Come and listen to our dynamic speakers during the day and witness the entertainment extravaganza in the evenings.  
And, Congress attendees will experience a number of firsts.
