We are back and even bigger than before! This year mid-autumn festival will be in Northwood High School and the admission is FREE. Hope to see you there!
Also big thanks to our sponsors this year that help make this event happen:
On Sunday October 8th, the Vietnamese American Services (VAS) held their first Mid-Autumn Festival at Long Branch Community Center. There were about 400 adults joined, more than 100 children, and 35 organisations and groups in Montgomery County attending the event, including community organisations, seniors, youth groups… The event brought so many entertaining activities, such as lion dance, traditional dancing, children singing, games, and music. It also brought many helpful information from the county to community and provided a lot of delicious authentic Vietnamese food. Maryland Mid-Autumn Festival is a meaningful festival for Vietnamese community, in which people can get together celebrate their traditional holiday and spend time with their families. This festival soon will become an annual festival not only for Vietnamese community, but also for all residents, who are interested in Vietnamese culture. Please see the pictures of Mid-Autumn Festival 2017 in the link:http://vasusa.org/galleries/ and see the video by Montgomery County Council:
The Long Branch Fire last month was a disaster for low-income families living in the building. To join Montgomery County’s efforts to support victims, VAS has continued to assist the Vietnamese family that was affected by the fire. The family has moved into a new apartment and settled down successfully. Ms Minh Tran, the head of the family, wrote a thank you letter to VAS and all county officers and donors who helped her family access new resources and start a new life smoothly. [Read more]. (more…)
