International Gathering

 

Our next International Gathering is Friday, September 5 2014.

 

In our September 5th International Gathering, please share 1 or 2 experience from your travels that are meaningful to you.   Through your story, we would be able to experience different cultural experience second-hand.

Our sharing sometimes lead to connections and resources that further the dreams of group members.  As always, you’ll find a safe and supportive atmosphere here.

***************

The international Gathering is a place where people from different countries can come together, have a cup of tea, talk with each other, learn about each other’s culture, and make friends,

It is also a place where immigrants can find friends who share their experience of adjusting to another culture.  Maybe support one another while they are away from their home country and families.

The International Gathering was created for the purpose of bringing people together who want to learn about other cultures, and building friendships.

Besides our monthly meetings, occasionally we learn to cook cuisine from different countries.  So far, we’ve learned to make Chinese fried rice, dumplings, stir-fried vegetables, French crepe, and some Russian food.
