Honors and Global Friends Coalition to host 7th annual Community-Refugee Picnic April 28

The Honors Program and Global Friends Coalition will host a picnic to foster relations between refugees and the broader community. The picnic will be held at 6 p.m. Sunday, April 28, in 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.

In case of bad weather, the picnic will be moved to the Memorial Union Loading Dock. Please check the Facebook event page for updates:
