Residents can meet their Sikh neighbors at the Plymouth library during Sikh Mystique – an afternoon with members of the local Sikh community planned from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11.
Paul Talwar, a leader with Sikh Outreach and Plymouth Canton Interfaith Community Outreach, has joined members of the local committee, Know Our Neighbors, to create this afternoon of introduction for the community.
A number of information tables – with members of the Sikh community –will allow attendees to ask questions and learn more. The afternoon will also include a presentation on Sikhism, the fifth-largest religion world-wide. Sikh and Punjabi music, dance, art and food will also provide further introduction to these neighbors.
Know Our Neighbors is a grass-roots organization of Plymouth area individuals who seek to help area residents become more familiar with the different customs and qualities of diverse cultures that reside within our communities, a library spokesman said.
Created by the Plymouth City Commission, the group hosted a similar intro event last year with the Muslim community.
Sikh Mystique is a free event and open to the public. The Plymouth District Library is located at 223 S. Main Street in downtown Plymouth.
