Baha’i community marks founder’s 200th year
The Albany Baha’i Community held its first of four events on Saturday, in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Baha’u’llah, the founder of the Baha’i faith.
Dozens of locals gathered at the Albany Town Hall for the first event, International Day of the World’s Indigenous People.
Organiser of the festivities Renee Farrant arranged various speakers, a musical performance and local indigenous artwork to create a rich cultural ceremony.
Three more events are to follow in the coming months — two more in Albany and one in Denmark.
The next Albany event is International Day of Peace on September 22 at 5.30pm, and hundreds of guests are expected.
Musicans Jarrad Inman, Tuaari Kuiti and Benjamin Anderson.
June Humphries, Terrell Lacey and Liz Vincent.
