Valley residents from all spiritual and religious traditions (and no traditions) are invited to a very special 200th Birthday of Baha'u'llah Celebration on Sunday, October 22nd at the Palmer Train Depot.

The first part will be a 1pm-5pm Open House to informally meet with local members of the Baha'i Faith. The afternoon will focus on the history as well as the spiritual and social teachings of Baha'u'llah.

The Open House will be followed by a special dinner at 5pm and then the Valley premiere of a 60-minute film on the life of Baha'u'llah (1817-1892).

This unique celebration and film premier in the Valley is hosted by the Palmer Baha'i Community with help from members of the Baha'i Faith throughout the borough. There is no fee and donations will not be accepted.

Questions about this historic celebration may be addressed to 745-1459.

Baha'is all over the planet will be celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Baha'u'llah in a myriad of creative events. This worldwide observance will be of unprecedented scope designed to engage folks in exploring Baha'u'llah's vision for humanity.

Baha'is have been an integral part of Alaska's history since 1905 when the first Baha'i traveling teacher set foot in what was then the Territory of Alaska.
