Celebrating New Citizens: All YMCA New American Welcome Center participants that have recently passed the citizenship exam will share their experience with the community and celebrate with them. Recipe Sharing with Tasting: Several of our participants will present a recipe native to their homeland. They will explain how to prepare the dish, the ingredients and perhaps some background on the dish (e.g. its origins, if it’s usually prepared at a given time/occasion, etc.). They will also provide samples of the dish. Recipes will be shared so attendees may prepare the dishes at home. Music & Dance Celebration: Immigrants and local residents will engage in dance activities that includes teaching dance moves to each other. A bridge building activity with Global Arts to Go will be included in the event.
