I hope everyone had a good time at the HaKKa summer picnic 2021 with lots of games, food, and fun. It was nice to see the HaKKa family after the 2020 Valentine’s day/Thindi party.
I have been serving as HaKKa president since March 2019. It’s been a wonderful experience so far. We had a rough last year with the COVID-19 pandemic, and we lost many loved ones during this pandemic for many reasons. My heartfelt condolences to all family and friends who lost their loved ones. Stay strong and healthy in the coming years. With that, I would like to thank
