World Relief Spokane is inviting neighbors and businesses on South Perry to a celebration of World Refugee Day on Saturday June 26 in Grant Park. Events begin at noon with a potluck of traditional food from Bhutan, Burma, Iraq, The Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea and many other countries. At 2 p.m. there will be a program featuring traditional dance and song performed by refugees who have settled in Spokane.

The press release from World Relief Spokane states that many refugees live in the South Perry District, where they shop and go to school - this is an open invitation to come and meet the families that have found a new home in Spokane.
