Gov. Tom Wolf stopped by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Convention on Friday to pay his respects to the Muslims who gathered at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex for their 67th annual convention that runs through Sunday.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Convention is an opportunity for non-Muslims to learn more about Islam and for Muslims to learn how to improve themselves and their community.
Wolf offered some welcoming remarks to the thousands who came from around the world to Harrisburg for the peace convention. It is free and open to the public to provide an opportunity to become acquainted with Muslims, their food and the Islamic culture.
“The goal is for us to come together and talk about how we can improve ourselves, our communities,” said spokesman Christopher Khalid-Janney of Mechanicsburg.
The event is open until 7 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday.
