THURSDAY, JUNE 27th

COUNTY’s OLDEST ASIAN-AMERICAN

HERITAGE GROUP CELEBRATES SILVER JUBILEE

The Westchester County Asian-American Republican Club was the first Asian-American Republican Club (AARC) in the United States. Next Thursday, the group will mark its 25th anniversary, which also makes it the oldest Asian-American heritage organization in Westchester County.

The event will honor Dr. Prasad Srinivasan, Connecticut State Representative, Mr. Robert Almeida, chairman of the Almeida Oil Company, and Mrs. Anju Joshi, a community leader and past president of the Indian American Cultural Association of Westchester. Each of these honorees has a unique story to tell about the role their heritage and the AARC played in achieving success while pursuing the American Dream.

The AARC was founded in 1988 by Dr. Priscilla Parameswaran and over the years has been profiled by the New York Times, lohud.com, India Abroad, India West, Spotlight, the Scarsdale Inquirer, News India, Kairali and Gannett Wetschester. The keynote speaker at the jubilee event will be New York Republican State Committee Chairman Ed Cox, who has made outreach to the Asian-American community a key priority during his tenure as Chairman and cites the AARC as a model organization.
