A huge heartfelt thank you to all who made this a very special day. Whether you made food items from your country, helped serve, helped our moms with their little ones, or were a part of the program - either by encouraging your child to participate or being one of the performers. Your contribution to International Day did not go amiss. Thank you, all, so much!
