Helen Hermanson admired a display featuring Hindu deities Saturday evening during an East Indian supper at St. John’s Anglican Church here. The supper was held in conjunction with the festival of “Diwali”—the Indian equivalent to Christmas. Diwali is a time when Hindus worship the Goddess of Wealth, Lakshmi, for success in the year ahead.
