I am happy to report that 2016 has been very successful so far for us at FIA Ohio—and our community as a whole. We focused on providing new services to our ever-growing family, celebrating our heritage, and opening up ourselves and our traditions to the greater Ohio community. We started the year with a special celebration of the 69th Republic Day. And in the spirit of international cooperation, we commemorated the event with a flag hoisting at the Statehouse, which is the seat of government for the State of Ohio. We had a lovely gathering for this momentous occasion. After rejoicing in this almost seventy-year-old tradition, we focused on creating what I believe will become new traditions. Thank you Niranjan (Neil) Patel Chairman, FIA – Ohio
