Year of the Snake starts February 10th.
Since International Gathering meets the 1st Friday of each month, we'll be celebrating Chinese New Year early on February 1st, from 1-3pm at the Redmond Library. The address is 15990 NE 85th Street, Redmond.
The International Gathering was created for the purpose of bringing people together who want to learn about other cultures and building friendships.
We usually have a topic of discussion for each meeting. Often we get off the topic into other conversations that were sparked as a result of our discussion. Such is the path of exploring and learning. And because we enjoy connecting with each other.
Those visiting this meeting speak various levels of English. So you don't have to worry about speaking perfect English. Come wherever you are in your English level. Speak if you feel comfortable. Or just absorb the good feeling in the group.
And if you like to travel for the purpose of understanding how others live, think, and approach life, you will probably enjoy your experience here.
We'll be celebrating Chinese New Year at our International Gathering this Friday, February 1st. (9 days early ! ) If you celebrate Chinese New Year, please feel free to share a custom you have. It may be a favorite snack, a song, a dance…anything that's meaningful for you. We'll celebrate it together. We may not have all the festivities in China, but we'll create our own!
