On the night when the brightest stars were not in the sky, the PNAGKC celebrated its tenth anniversary on March 31, 2001.  The event was successfully and creatively organized by the planning committee which included the chairs and members of the social and education committees  (see page 5).

There was no doubt that for the members of PNAGKC, who were the stars of the night, the celebration marked a decade of accomplishments which seemed far fetched than planned, but actually fit well in the scheme of established goals and in the humanitarian desire to help others under limited resources.  The general attitude of "can do" has prevailed through the ten years and without question, will remain for this year
and the coming years.

Here are the highlights of the celebration:
