Consul General Yonzon, along with former Non-Resident Nepali Association President President, Shesh Ghale, and other esteemed community members were present for the opening of the program. In his address, Consul General Yonzon said that the community centre should be treated as one’s own garden, where all can come together and say, “It is ours.”
