The 8th annual Centreville International Showcase was held Saturday, April 21, at the Korean Central Presbyterian Church in Centreville. This cultural celebration sponsored by the Centreville Immigration Forum (CIF) included an international talent show, a silent auction and 50/50 raffle, as well as exotic cuisine from a variety of local restaurants. The evening highlighted the cultural heritage of Centreville residents from such countries as Guatemala, Ireland, India, Ghana, Peru and Korea.
“The Showcase is a wonderful coming together of so many diverse groups and individuals in our community. I think it’s a testament to the work that volunteers do through the Labor Resource Center and throughout the community encouraging us to appreciate and enjoy all of the contributions from so many different groups,” said CIF President Alice Foltz.
