ICS History

History of ICS

Time flies -1972 does not seem like so distant in the past – but with the changes brought on by technology it seems like ancient times – like the stone age. ICS was formed in Jacksonville, FL in 1972 to promote and celebrate Indian cultural and national programs. There were around 20-25 families in the beginning of 1972 who founded the ICS. The first Diwali function took place in JU Student Center on University Blvd.

Since then, ICS enriched the lives of thousands of people interested in Indian culture, of Indian background or otherwise. The management of ICS has changed every year, but the fundamentals of the organization have remained the same – namely, serving the community.
