On Saturday, May 16th, AALEAD hosted its first Lotus Festival!
The idea for the event and the name for the event came from the AALEAD Ambassadors. Our Ambassadors are a select group of high school youth who met once a month to figure out ways to promote AALEAD and share about what we do. They decided that an event like the "Lotus Festival" would be a great way to show others about our programs! And it was!
The event was held at our Center in Columbia Heights from 1:00-3:30pm.
Inside, there were a host of games, arts & crafts, programs posters, slideshows, and FOOD! It was also a day for us to recognize some of our most important members of the AALEAD community: our volunteers!
