Queen City community to celebrate U.N. World Refugee Day today
This event will take place today at the William B. Cashin Senior Activity Center from 5 to 7 p.m. and is expected to draw 300 attendees from the greater Manchester area.
The event will feature a photographic slideshow by Beck Fields of Field Work Photos, speeches by refugees from the Manchester community, a cultural attire show, a traditional Bhutanese dance, and Swahili singing.
“We’re excited to bring together and celebrate all the cultures that make Manchester so diverse. The refugee community looks forward to sharing their traditions with the entire Manchester community,” said Nasir Arush, site director of the International Institute of New Hampshire.
The International Institute of New England, a non-profit agency, invests in the strength and determination of new Americans and helps them create a solid foundation today for a brighter and more successful tomorrow.
