International Gathering

 

Welcome to 2015.  Our next International Gathering is Friday, January 9th.  Although we usually meet the 1st Friday of each month, we are moving this month’s meeting to the 9th because the 1st Friday is a long weekend.

 

We meet from 11 AM to 12:30.  If you are bringing children to the meeting, please pack their favorite toys so they would not feel bored.

 

Members are becoming friends over time.  It is a wonderful sight to behold.  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.

 

Redmond Library, Meeting Room 1, 11 AM to 12:30 PM

The address is 15990 NE 85th Street, Redmond.

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

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

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.

In addition to 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.

We also go on day trips to explore Seattle and surrounding areas. This year, we’ve been to Richmond Beach, Carkeek Park, Golden Gardens Park, Greenlake, Swanson’s Nursery, Lake Union to see the houseboats, Volunteer Park Conservatory, Deception Pass, Tulip Festival, u-pick strawberries, raspberries, bluberries.   For details, email support@englisharoundtheworld.com
