Community Centers transform into Romania
In March 2015, students learned all about Romania, including fascinating facts about the historical Romanian leader, Count Dracula! Indeed, this year's Cultural Education Program was one to remember as Centers turned into castles filled with great food, musical performances, and historical characters. Thank You all who had a part in making this happen! Bringing the world to children of poor remote areas! Thank You!
