Hmong Fellowship Banquet on Thursday April 2, 2015

 

You are invited to the Eau Claire Hmong Fellowship Banquet and this year's theme is "40 Years, 40 Xyoos" as this is the 40th year anniversary that the Hmong have been in the U.S.

The Hmong Fellowship Banquet is a time when the Hmong community, and the Eau Claire community have the opportunity to deepen their relationship and connection with one another. This 40th anniversary is a collaborative effort of the Eau Claire Area Hmong Mutual Assistance Association, the Hmong community, and UW-Eau Claire. 


 

We are also proudly working with UW-Eau Claire to kick off a capital fund campaign for the Hmong Initiatives Support Fund (#2160). The Hmong Initiatives Support Fund has been established to help develop a critical Hmong Studies curriculum and Program, an Elder/Scholar in residence, an endowed Chair/Director of Hmong Studies, and a Hmong Studies Program Center at UW-Eau Claire to educate the at large community about the Hmong, as well as, educating the American born Hmong Americans about who they are in relation to their culture and history.

In addition to the fund kickoff, the evening will be filled with food, entertainment, a live “documentary” of guest speakers reflecting on their journey to Wisconsin, and making the City of Eau Claire and the Chippewa Valley their home.
There are door prizes to be won, and silent auction items to be acquired.

The Hmong Fellowship Banquet will take place this year on April 2, 2015. The event opens at 4:30 p.m. for registration outside of the Ojibwe Ball Room in Davies Center at UW-Eau Claire. The program is scheduled to begin at 5:00 p.m.
