Honors, Global Friends Coalition to host annual community-refugee picnic May 18
The UND Honors Program and Global Friends Coalition will be hosting a picnic to foster relations between refugees and the broader community. The picnic will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 18, at University Park.
Grand Forks has become home to refugees mostly from Bhutan, Iraq, Burundi, Liberia, and Somalia in recent years. The picnic will allow both new and long-term residents to get to know their fellow community members.
The meal is potluck, to allow for cultural exchange via food. Please label your food with basic ingredients. Plates, utensils, and beverages will be provided. Feel free to bring outdoor activities, as well. All community members are encouraged to attend.
