Dear Indonesian Community,
We are happy to announce that one of the members of our community has secured the purchase of one set of Angklung bamboo musical instruments from Indonesia and cleared it with Canada Customs. The ICC Board and Executive really appreciate all her efforts as well as her financial generosity in obtaining them.
We sincerely hope that these musical instruments can have a positive impact and improve togetherness within our community while, at the same time, introduce the cultural richness of Indonesia and make other communities in Ottawa and the surrounding area aware of it.
The ICC culture and education team is still at the preparation stage for Angklung practice. Ibu Nina and Ibu Edith have volunteered to coach the group. We also plan to have a practice every Saturday. More detailed information, including the venue, is still being developed and will be announced when they have been confirmed. Meanwhile we are looking for 10 or more children/young people to start building the Anklung music group.
We are asking all parents to encourage their children to join the ICC Angklung group to master these instruments. Please send your inquiry and mention your child’s interest by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am sure we have a lot of potential capability “from within” our community and I hope that everyone join us to support the ICC’s vision to shape a better world for the generations to come.
Thank you for your attention and help in this initiative.

My utmost appreciation to trio organizer ibu Susi, Ibu Soesi and ibu Iis led by ibu Susi as ICC-IFF Event Manager to plan, prepare and coordinate this event from getting the info, spreading and collecting donations and participation, keeping tab and document, but also they were preparing food, cooking for donation food, servicing table, cleaning and closing after the event and so much other detail work to make this event successful.
I am thankful for generous contribution from trio family members of Indonesian community(all are member of ICC and Indonesian Muslim in Ottawa) in Montreal and Ottawa which donate initial $500 to allow us securing 2 tables for our participation in this festival without using organizations funds which then increase execution motivation to move forward.
I also appreciate the volunteer for food tables servicing that greet customer with respect, polite and smiles to make the food selling a great success and able to collect net sale of almost $600 with almost no left over food behind. This team is play a key role to show Indonesia warm-hearted, friendly neighborly and graciously displayed by ibu Retty, ibu Nina, ibu Iis, ibu Meta, ibu Shelly, ibu Soesi and mbak Sara.
Off course the tables will be empty without generous donation from member of community in Ottawa and Gatineau. I acknowledge the donation and vendor participation from (I apologize if I miss any)

To the end I would like to summarize ICC at IFF fund raising result as follow:
- Donation for 2 tables: $500
- Net proceed of donated food: $639.25
- Gross sale of donated foods $639.25
- Cutlery disposable cost $35.00
- Raffle ticket deduction $10.00
- Net Proceed: $639.25 – $35.00 – $10.00 = $594.25
- Vendor Contribution – $97
- Food vendors : $34
- Art Craft Clothing: $63
I have paid the $500 prior to the festival and after the festival as we decided during ICC meeting that net proceed from food donation will be split evenly between ICC and IFF/HCI and to that effect we have $594.25 divide by 2 as $297.125 and round up to $300 donated to IFF/HCI. So we have donated $800 to the cause at this event. Receipts are available here http://www.indonesiacanada.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/ICC-at-IFF.pdf
Remaining of funds $594.25 – $300 = $294.25 plus vendor contribution of $97 to the total of $391.25 will be placed to ICC funds.
Again thank you for all support and apologize for any shortcoming or misunderstanding. Hopefully we can work and have fun together again in the future events as one best community in Canada.
