More about HATS
30 years ago, a small group of Tamil speaking friends got together with the objective of enjoying the diversity of this language and passing down the identity of Tamilians and the traditions of Tamilnadu to the younger generation. Thus was born the Harrisburg Area Tamil Sangam – HATS.
We publish an eMagazine ‘Tamizhaaram’, a collection of drawings, poems, short stories and essays from members. HATS brings the local Tamil community together by celebrating Tamil festivals like Uzhavar Thirunaal (Pongal) and the Tamil New Year with colorful cultural programs and a mouth-watering feast.
The Tamil School is an integral part of the association.
