Sikhism: Saturday, April 27 @ 12pm-2pm, 4394 Tylersville Rd., West Chester, OH 45011, www.sikhcoalition.org

"When visiting the Center, we ask that women wear slacks or long skirts and long-sleeved shirts, and bring a scarf to cover their heads when entering the main Mosque. We also request men wear slacks and sleeved shirts.
ISLAM means “submission to God” and derives from the root “slm” which means peace. Muslims of all ethnicities and backgrounds gather at ICGC to pray, socialize and learn. Opened in 1995, ICGC is built on strong interfaith relations, cross-cultural understanding and service to all. Prayer is followed by an informational tour, social hour and refreshments. No limit."
