"Introducing Your Culture Day"

I do like to list events here generally but i thought this was worth listing.

-- EVENT: "Introducing Your Culture Day" - An international festival
-- DATE & TIME: Sunday, October 28 from 13:00 - 16:00
-- PARTICIPATING EMBASSIES: India, Kenya, Mongolia, Nepal,
Philippines, Sweden and the U.S.

"Introducing Your Culture Day" is organzied for the children of Nonohana-no-ie -
The "Wildflower House" http://www.hanazaki.jp/english/index.html - a home for 40 Japanese and non-Japanese children aged 2-18, who are victims of child abuse and neglect.

Volunteers are encouraged to come up with their own preferred ways to
help out this event. Some are performing music, others are preparing food or will play
games with the children with their own cultural themes. There will be an outside stage for
performers. Mongolian dancers will perform the traditional dance this year.

They are looking for help with the US booth and also still looking for other groups to do thier own cultural booth/food/performance. Contact banana_bread@yahoo.com to help out.
