New Milestone


Dear Esteemed Members of Our Community:

Lehigh Valley Indian-Americans have reached an important milestone in more than 50 years of their presence in the Lehigh Valley and achieved a new momentum in reaching a goal for second generation and generations to come.

A sign – Indian American Assoc. of LV – at the intersection of Rt 33 & Wm Penn Highway – has been installed by Penndot. IAALV adopted this intersection in 2014 to be a part of Great American Clean-up of PA.DSC03614

This was possible because of the alliance IAALV recently formed with the LV Kannada Group and the volunteer support of LV Gujarati Brahmin Samaj. We owe it to Prof Balakrishna Rao for his tireless service to make this possible on behalf of 7000 plus Lehigh Valley Indian-Americans.

We have established ourselves in this adopted country and now our community’s presence in the local scene through simple acts of altruism thus living up to our Mission Statement – “We care for the Community We Live In”

This is a moment of reflection for all Americans – being an integral part of local society, bridging the gaps between people of different cultures, language, race, age, background and beliefs, so that all may participate fully in the life and welfare of our home -Lehigh Valley – thus building a secure future for us all.

Look forward to have fruitful and meaningful outcomes from the various alliances that IAALV has recently formed. Let us continue to forge ahead.

Next Great American Clean-Up of PA is on Sat Oct 3.

A BIG Thank You to our regular volunteers for their ongoing commitment for this twice a year clean-up project. Last clean-up was on Sat May 23 and next Clean-up is scheduled for Oct 3rd. Please volunteer your time!

Please contact Prof. Balakrishna Rao IAALV Coordinator – Road Clean-up Project —
