On Friday, October 17th, more than 150 people attended the Diwali Celebration held at the Porter Drive Cafe. This was one of ASF's largest event yet. Manju Smith, ASF's Accountant continues to spearhead the celebration once again with the support of her department in co-sponsoring and hosting Diwali for the staff community at Stanford. We learned about the importance of Diwali, an ancient Hindu festival celebrated every fall and its traditions. A short video was shown depicting this colorful and festive celebration, which was evident in the bright clothing worn by many in attendance.
