County Encourages Residents to Celebrate Diversity at the UC Vo-Tech Multicultural Fair
The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders encourages the public to celebrate cultural diversity by attending the Multicultural Fair hosted by the Union County Vo-Tech School in Scotch Plains on Saturday, May 12 from 11 am to 3 pm.
“We are privileged to live in a County that encompasses many people from various cultural backgrounds and ethnicities,” noted Freeholder Mohamed Jalloh. “The Freeholder Board is proud to support the Vo-Tech school and we urge people to take part in the celebration.”
As part of the Multicultural Fair, school clubs and organizations will have booths with a display of games, cultural dancing, music and many activities for adults and children. It is a day of fun, music, and food that gives participants the opportunity to experience cultural diversity on various levels.
With help from Breadsmith in Cranford, Pinho’s Bakery in Roselle and Barshay’s restaurant in Roselle, admission to this event is offered free of charge to the public. Half of the proceeds from food and booth sales will benefit "Water is Life,” a charity that supplies filtering straws to people in third world countries in an effort to prevent water-related illnesses.
In addition, the Vo-Tech School will also be hosting a food drive with the statewide community service project, New Jersey Future Farmers of America Against Hunger, and will be collecting canned and/or dried goods that will be donated to the Rutgers Against Hunger Program. Donating participants will be given a free plant from the FFA Club for their contributions while supplies last. The Multicultural Fair is a day of cultural awareness created by the Multicultural Club of the Union County Vocational-Technical School District.
