BBQ/Dinner of HML We had a succesful first annual BBQ/dinner on Friday 7th of September at 6:00 pm at the Harvard Medical School Quad. The goal was to get together, socialize, have fun, welcome the new Mulsim students who joined the campus this year, and of course eat delicious food. Food was brought by ourselves and had flavours from the Indian subcontinenet, North Africa, and from other Arab regions. There were almost 40 people and the weather was perfect. We then prayed Maghrib in Jama'a and took a dive at eating the sweets afterwards. In all, it was a very nice occasion, and we hope to make it a tradition for HML. We also selected Hilal Lashuel as our "Chef of the Year" as his food seemed to be the most favoured. Congradulations!!
