After weeks of planning, the Bahá’ís of Lynnwood finally enjoyed an afternoon of celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Báb (the Gate), the Herald-Founder of the Bahá’í Faith, on October 26 at the Wicker Building in Heritage Park on Poplar Way.
We felt honored and privileged to have Mayor Nicola Smith reading and gifting us with a Proclamation to remember the day for centuries to come.
Our keynote speaker was Navid Modaressi, an erudite youth who shared with us some thoughts and insights addressing “Two Centuries Evisioning a New Future for Humanity.” We also had the pleasure of performances by Seattle Symphony violist Wes Dyring of three classical pieces, a befitting ambiance to celebrate this occassion.
All was followed by a dinner and dessert so we had a chance to get to know one another. We want to thank everyone for joining us to make this event an occasion to remember.
