All are invited to join our Cultural Encounters group now in its third year.  Meeting for a two hour program once a month, we feature a different culture with a lively discussion about what makes it unique and have a delicious sampling of food.

Learn by comparing cultures

We learn from each other comparing the social aspects of our own cultures.  How large a factor is community opinion versus individual choice?  Is being on time important?  What about authority and relationships?  Get the insights into all the dos and don’ts of our very unique countries, ask questions and broaden your world knowledge in a very relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

Last year we had encounters featuring Southern United States culture, South India, China, Belgium, Great Britain, and Croatia.  Thank you to all our wonderful hostesses!  Potential programs this year feature Africa, South American, and Scandinavia.  Other ideas are very welcome.

Sign up for the first encounter featuring Somalia

Our first program of the year will be hosted by Khadra Mohamed and will feature Somalia, East Africa on Friday, October 13th from 12:00 noon to 2:00 PM.  Please sign up online if you would like to attend and/or be added to our email list.  Additional details will follow.
