The Norwood Welcomes America Dinner highlighted the rich culture woven into Norwood and its people.
Welcome America Week is a national movement observed in the second week of September. Along with Welcome America Week events around the country, the Norwood Welcomes America Dinner asks immigrants in the community to take the lead. Norwood residents from Venezuela, Sri Lanka, Palestine, and Jordan planned the sold-out family-style dinner, which brought 50 neighbors together at Lower Millcrest Park to share a meal and their cultures.
“The ultimate goal is to create a Norwood where people from all cultures are known, respected, and loved,” said Carson Sotelo, Event Chairman.
