Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the outstanding work of two great community organizations.
The Central Association of Punjabi Writers of North America celebrated its 30th anniversary. It members gather once a month to release their books and share their literary creations. Its dedicated members make invaluable contributions in preserving and promoting the Punjabi language and Punjabi culture.
I would also like to congratulate the Sanjha Vehra Women's Association on the success of its 13th annual breast cancer fundraiser held in my riding of Surrey—Newton. The event raised thousands of dollars for the best health clinic in Surrey.
I ask all members to join me in wishing these two outstanding organizations continued success.
