Welcome to Peoria and welcome to Bruhan Maharashtra Mandal Peoria (BMMP).
BMMP was formed in Oct 2007. The sole intention of forming the group is to preserve the marathi culture, marathi language and marathi sanskar. The very purpose is to pass on this heritage to the upcoming generations.
BMMP facilitates celebration of marathi events in Peoria for marathi people in and around Peoria Area. This includes Makar Sankranti, Gudhi Padwa, Ganapati and Diwali. These are the events to come together and share the joy..
We are committed to provide a platform for upcoming artists and amateurs in various forms of arts. This includes music, dramatics, painting and photography.
BMMP will conduct classes for various ages, for reading and writing marathi script. We will conduct memorizing competitions of marathi shlok, arya and ovya especially for kids annually.
We will also conduct introductory classes on history and geography of Maharashtra.
We believe that our tiny effort will help preserve our very own maay-marathi at our hearts and cherish in our kids.
