Our first international community gathering had a great turn out! In addition to U.S., we had friends from China, Korea, Ethiopia, Iran, India, Russia, and Italy.
After our introductions, we mingled and chat with each other. Some were there to meet new friends and learn about other cultures, some were there to practice their English. General feedback was people felt an atmosphere similar to being back home. The request was for more gatherings.
Our next meetings will be January 15 and February 20, 2011, at the Bellevue Regional Library, Meeting Room 1, from 1-3 pm.
