The Centreville Immigration Forum (CIF) held its third annual International Dance and Music Festival, on Friday night, April 27, at Centreville’s Fire Station 17.

“This evening is a celebration of Centreville’s diverrsity and the richness it brings to this community,” said CIF President Alice Foltz. “Some of tonight’s performers are the laborers available for hire at the Centreville Labor Resource Center.”

The event included a silent auction, plus a sale of art and clothing made by the workers. “Tonight’s about fun,” said Sully District Supervisor Michael Frey. “We cherish our diversity and enjoy learning about our different foods, cultures and music and also sharing our commonalities.”
