Persian Circle of Friends MD, VA, DC Pages

Welcome to our social/cultural Iranian-Americans meet up group where Farsi speakers gather to socialize; participate in cultural events; professionally network; exchange ideas; and brain storm to create new ways to encourage other Iranian Americans to reconnect to their roots.
Note that this group was formed in June 2006 and was the first Iranian-American Meetup group in the Metro DC area. It has been "Often Imitated But Never Duplicated!"

It is a great Place for:
• Iranian-Americans to gather and speak their tongue “Farsi”
• New Iranians-American to the area to make new friends and to feel welcome.
• Creating opportunities for interested parties to learn more about the Persian Language and Culture.
• Participating in cultural events, concerts, theaters, lectures, and movies.
• Outdoor activities like mountain biking, canoeing, hiking, soccer, volleyball, badminton during picnics and breakfast, lunch, and dinner outings.
• Learning and playing games like Backgammon, Hokm, Dominos, Poker, and Bingo.
• Taking part in our Persian Poetry nights enabling us to learn more about our well known treasures like: Baba Taher, Ferdowsi, Hafez, Molana Jalaledin Rumi, Omar Khayyam, Saadi, Nizami, Forugh Farrokhzad, Nima Yoshig (Ali Esfandiari) , Ahmad Shamlou, Simin Behbahani , Sohrab Sepehri, Mehdi Akhavan, Saleth (M. Omid), and Feraydoun Moshiri.
• Learning more about the Iranian business in the area and making an attempt to increase cooperation between them and the Iranian-Americans.
• Serving the Persian community by doing volunteer work.
• Participating in our dinner and dance events held at restaurants and clubs in the area.
