Music and the arts. We hope that many people will feel inspired by the music and artistic presentation--particularly shared by the youth. Please let us know if you can contribute to an artistic presentation.

Children's classes. The committee will arrange a vibrant children's class program that will be held next door in the institute house. The classes will be divided by age and be an opportunity for the young children to learn about the Administrative Order. We will call on youth and junior youth to teach these classes in the company of a few adult Baha'is. We hope this will encourage parents to bring their children so that our youngest members can begin to appreciate the importance of the Administrative Order at an early age.

Unit Convention Organizers:   Ernie Bruss, Eric Vahid-Schetcher, Leticia Fierro, Natasha Bruss, and Nava Kavelin
