27th Flag hoisting and Taste of Pakistan August 25th 2018 Association of Pakistani Americans Bolingbrook

Association of Pakistani Americans of Bolingbrook (APA) is an intimate group who puts our community before anything else. It was founded in 1991 and first flag hoisting ceremony only attracted 22 people. Our outreach is great and we strive to deliver to the needs of our community. Our efforts do not stop at just the Pakistan Day festivities. We are involved politically, socially and morally. Bolingbrook offers a full adult and youth cricket league to the community along with participation in disaster relief efforts, family counseling, financial assistance and many other services. APA has represented Chicago on the world indoor game played in the native country (Carom Board). Our members are part of Lions club, Chamber of Commerce and several other local non-profit organizations. APA also voluntarily acts as a liaison between Consulate of Pakistan and the Pakistani community on need basis. The Association of Pakistani Americans of Bolingbrook has been hosting Pakistan Independence day programs in Bolingbrook for 25 years in the presence of Village officials, Consul General of Pakistan and various politicians who graciously honored us. Every year Taste of Pakistan attracts over 10,000 people from all over Chicago area including neighboring states to educate Pakistani cultural to the local community. APA programs and activities are highlighted not only in local media but International media has also covered their event and activities
