Hmong Heritage Month

April is Hmong Heritage Month.

According to the 2010 Census:
      –  5.3% of the population in Marathon County is Asian.
–  2.3% of the population in Wisconsin is Asian.

In Wausau this past weekend there was a cultural fair at one of the local high schools.

4-H joined in the festivities.  It was quite a bit of fun.

Here are some pictures of our booth with WNEP.

Check to see if there are any events in your area! It was fun!

A Warm Thank-You

In the mail, I received a very warm thank you note from the Neighbor’s Place of Wausau.  This was because I had collected four gifts to donate to them for the Holidays.

I hope next year clubs will do something like this!

I’m also hoping to partner with them next year to get a bigger donation.

Thank you so much for your help!
