Upcoming Summer Events

July and August will be packed full of things to do, so save the dates! Bring your friends and family with you as we work with the community to bring you not only fun and entertainment, but new cultural experiences.

July 14th is World Refugee Day, where refugees will gather to share their journeys, their arts, crafts, food, culture and more to their community. Come build new relationships with your new neighbors and learn more about their culture. KOM will be there along with the Karen Weaving Circle.
