Dear Sir/Madam
On behalf of the Sikh community we take great pleasure in inviting you to attend the first Vaisakhi Fair in Adelaide. Vaisakhi is the festival which celebrates the founding of the Sikh community known as the Khalsa. It is celebrated on April 14 each year. On Vaisakhi day in 1699, Guru Gobind Singh (the tenth Sikh Guru) summoned Sikhs from all over India to the city of Anandpur Sahib. At this gathering, the Guru called upon Sikhs to uphold their faith and preserve the Sikh religion. Guru Gobind Singh gave the Khalsa a unique identity with five distinctive symbols of purity and courage, known today as the Five K's. The Guru gave all Khalsa men the surname of Singh (lion) as a reminder to be courageous. Women took on the surname Kaur (princess) to emphasize dignity. With the distinct Khalsa identity, Guru Gobind Singh gave all Sikhs the opportunity to live lives of courage, sacrifice, and equality. These Sikhs were to dedicate their lives to the service of others and the pursuit of justice. The Vaisakhi fair is to be held as the Golden Grove Recreation & Arts Centre (The Golden Way, Golden Grove, SA) on Saturday 12th April 2014. We look forward to your company at this significant Sikh celebration. Please find enclosed a program for the event.

Yours Sincerely,Sikh Services Australia
