World Refugee Day 2009

On June 20th, KRM clients, staff, volunteers and community partners met at Woodland Park to celebrate World Refugee Day. Refugees from Iraq, Bhutan, DRC, and Republic of Congo joined together to express their gratitude and happiness. To celebrate, we ate an eclectic meal of different dishes from the represented countries. Sawyer's also donated chicken sandwiches to compliment the potluck side dishes. After eating, music, dancing and games ensued. Cornhole was a big hit that everyone enjoyed playing and watching. It was a great day and great way to build community among refugees and native Lextonians. Check out the pictures!
