A lot has been done but yet a lot more is to be done in making this year’s convention a success with specific target on discussing and achieving the goals of Felmausa.
In a period of few weeks from now, the Holy month of Ramadan will be here, which means all social activities in our community will seized till the official end of the month. Owing to the observance of the holy month, this year’s convention will be moved forward to the following selected dates by the National Administration of the Federation with approval from the National Boards of directors: the dates selected are Friday August 22, Saturday August 23, and Sunday August 24, 2014.
Each of these dates mentioned above will be climaxed by a social event at night. The hard working Social Committee Chairman, Mr. Amara Kamara has informed me that all is set for this year’s convention in Philadelphia including the booking of the hall, and soccer field. The venue for all social events that are planned for the night will be held at the Park Avenue Banquet Hall located at; 4942 Park Side, Philadelphia Pa 19131.
On Friday August 22, 2014 after the Jumar Prayer, the Traditional Hour will be held at; 5530 Acana Hall on Chester Ave. Philadelphia Pa 19143. During the Traditional Hour event, the knowledgeable elders in our community whom are blessed with wisdom and understanding of the working of our beloved community will take us down memory lane, which should serve as guidance and advice for the younger generation of today. Also, I am clothed with the authority to happily inform the general public that the indoor program of this year’s convention will as well be held at the above location as the Traditional Hour.
Now, we all know what it means when conventions are held in Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love and sisterly affection. The city is gonna be hot with fashion fair, traditional African dresses and of course European and Western style outfits. This year’s convention promises to be the best of all conventions held because of the excitement and enthusiasm evolving in the communities of members’ states. What this also means is that you can’t afford to be left out because friends you’ve not met for a long time will be right here in Philadelphia. The Felmausa convention has always been like a reunion of very large Liberian Mandingo families. You’ve got to come and be a part.
