"We encourage all community members to participate in all celebrations. We take great pride in our religious, cultural, educational and community services that are conducted at Krishnadham." Shah said.

BAYVP community services include Shreemaya Vidya Mandir, Nikunj Yuva Seva Program and a Senior Center.

Shreemaya Vidya Mandir enrolls over 200 students who study Hinduism, Hindi, Gujarati, music, art, etc. Nikunj Yuva Seva is involved with youth volunteer activities such as blood drives, medical camps and cultural events.
