Ethiopian Heritage Society in North America (EHSNA) 2014

The Ethiopian Heritage Society in North America (EHSNA) would like to announce its 4th annual summer festival that will take place from July 25th to 27th 2014. Our festival will take place at Georgetown University (GU) in Washington DC, where we have held our past three events, and we consider GU to be our home.

Our summer event is our biggest event of the years, and besides introducing and promoting our rich culture and heritage, we feature a multifaceted activity that is geared towards and inclusive of all ages that come to our events. Our purpose has always been to create a familial event where both parents and children and everyone can participate together. In our past three events, we have made sure to particularly focus on children, and we will continue to do so.

So what do we have planned for this year’s event? On our first day, which is Friday, will be community oriented where we will have poetry, drama, discussions, and presentations. Unlike our subsequent two events, this event will be held at 1 Veterans Pl, Silver Spring, MD 20910.Washington D.C. Ethiopian Heritage Society in North America (EHSNA) 2014

On our second day, field day, as always, we will begin our soccer and athletic events while having some entertainment congruently. Lastly, for our closing, we will award winners in the sports, scholarship programs, and honors.
