A night when we celebrate and learn about the different heritages, cultures and family backgrounds of our Chinook community. We want to make sure ALL our diverse puzzle pieces are incorporated; from Japanese to Scottish, from Peruvian to Sudanese.  There will be food, activities, displays and even performances.



April 22, 6PM – 8PM, Chinook Commons



FOOD!!! This will be a potluck, so we ask that everyone bring food from their unique heritage. If you do not have any recipes from your particular heritage, bring a family recipe, since family is a main component in culture.

  • Please plan to bring a serving size that will feed 150% -200% of your family. If 4 people from your family come to the event, please bring a dish for 6-8. More is always welcome!
  • Please bring a note with the name of the dish, origin (if applicable) and ingredients. If the dish is store bought, please leave it in the original packaging.
  • Please avoid nuts. If that would hinder you from representing your cultural cuisine, please contact Mr. Moe-Lobeda

Besides that, just show up, enjoy the food and performances and browse the displays and activities.



Displays/Activities: We will have displays and activities from various cultures around the world. In order to have enough, we need student/families to volunteer to bring some.

  • Examples from our elementary schools include: a display board about Russian culture, wearing and showing off traditional garb from a particular country, teaching/learning how to write people’s names in Chinese.
  • If you are interested in contributing a display or station regarding your heritage, please contact one of the following volunteer organizer:
  1.  Chinese - Ping Zhou (425) 628-8155  huaping18@hotmail.com
  2.  Hispanic/Latino – Edith Guerrero  (425) 518-7359 edithjacobos@yahoo.com
  3. Not Listed Above or you would like to be the point person for a group) – Leif Moe-Lobeda (425) 456-6305  moej@bsd405.org

Performances: We hope to have several performances throughout the evening. Whether it be a student, family or outside group who performs, all participants and performances are welcome.

  • To contribute a performance, or make us aware of a great outside group to invite, please contact Alka Manchanda at alkamanchanda@gmail.com .
