THE WOODLANDS: Hindu Temple of The Woodlands held a Diwali Party for seniors at the temple on Wednesday, October 29. The seniors enjoyed hearing a musical program and playing Diwali Games. This was followed by Dandiya Raas with volunteers teaching the basic steps to some who had never learned the popular folk dance.

The party ended with a delicious lunch with a great variety of sweet and savory items prepared by the seniors and the volunteers. There were even “goody bags” to take home.

This event was an addition to the bi-weekly meetings held at the temple located at 7601 S. Forestgate in The Woodlands on the first and third Wednesdays from 10:30 am to 2 pm. The meetings are open to all who consider themselves seniors. The meetings include a chair-based yoga session, a laughing yoga session, a talk or presentation on a topic of interest, a light lunch, and time for socializing.
