International Festival- May 31st

There’s still time to celebrate your families’ diversity by hosting a table and/or performing at Memorial Spaulding’s International Festival next Thursday 5/31 from 6:00-8:00!
The International Festival is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate Memorial Spaulding’s amazing diversity. Families have the opportunity to “visit” various countries, learn different languages, make arts and crafts, taste traditional foods from all over the world and be entertained by inspiring performances from across the globe! Most of all, this event teaches us all to celebrate our common humanity.
There are MANY ways to get involved whether it’s helping set up, host a table, organize a performance or help clean up, all while have FUN!  If you want your country represented, please make sure to sign up for a table or performance! Use this link to sign up!
