Sambhag Bala Pramukh, Sri.Ramesh ji Madhu, gave maargadarshan about how HSS Bala activities provide great learning opportunities to combine the best values from Hindu heritage and American society. According to their gana, kids were assigned to two different rooms

The last activity were Kahoot quizzes, which were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The hour long session concluded with shanti mantra.
