Fall 2014 Programs at the Korean Heritage House
Korean Heritage House activities calendar is currently being updated.
Korean Adoptees, Family & Friends
A Relevant Topic - A Lively Discussion - A Fun Social Time
In the Korean language the word Ka-jok, means family. A thin vein of Korean history binds our families together. It is our job to keep this small, yet vital thread a relevant and important part of our lives. Though a bond of empathy we can continue to try and learn about one another - and the trying is the most important part. Make time for learning and enriching your life with other people’s experiences.
This program is for Korean adoptees and their friends 13 years old - 17 years old. Brooke Newmaster will lead and moderate each meeting. Parents are welcome to stay for the first hour of the discussion and can continue to meet and spend time with other parents in the KHH lobby. Teens are invited to continue the discussion with Adult Korean Adoptees in the dance studio area. Topics and guest speakers will be announced at the beginning of each month.
Participants will enjoy making Korean snacks and sharing them with parents 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm.
Families are encouraged to dine at Sole Café or Mirror of Korea afterwards and keep the conversation going.
FREE. This program is sponsored by Brooke Newmaster, in honor of our beloved Michelle Ploetz.
Donations are welcome.
