World Refugee Day ImageMark your calendar for June 27, 2015 and join Refugee and Immigration Services at 2601 W. Broadway, Broadway Christian Church, from 6 to 9 p.m. for a celebration like no other. Celebrate the courage and strength of millions of women, men and children who are forced to flee their homes under threat of persecution, conflict or violence.

At World Refugee Day, individuals, organizations and agencies will unite to celebrate culture and diversity in our community. There will be an international potluck, games, crafts, entertainment and the opportunity to meet people in the Columbia community and appreciate cultures from all over the world. Stop by to relax, make new connections and sample international cuisine.

The Broadway Christian Church garden hosts a large number of refugee and immigrant gardeners who are a vibrant part of the garden community there. The Community Garden Coalition is pleased to be able to help support this gardenm and we encourage community gardeners to visit this event and meet some fellow gardeners.
