Chinese New Year in Enniskillen
I thoroughly enjoyed attending the Chinese New Year event at the
Lakeland Forum, Enniskillen. It was an entertaining 2-hour programme of
activities. There was a review of the cultural impact of the Chinese
community upon the world, a lion dance, kung fu, ribbon dances,
finishing with a culinary feed.
event was hosted by Women of the World, who began as a group of women
who enjoyed sharing their ethnic cooking with each other. They have
expanded to programmes such as cultural diversity training.
It was a pleasure to meet the organisers, Anita and Maria, both
delightful women. I also enjoyed meeting Women of the World member,
Maggie, a fellow American ex-pat who informed me about their
organisation’s origins and activities.
I look forward to meeting their next event. The attached photograph is of Anita (left) and Maria (right).
