WCAC Head Start to host Multicultural Night 
Southeast Asian Coalition's Worcester Youth Nian Dancers to perform

Southbridge, Massachusetts - Worcester Community Action Council, Inc.'s Head Start program will host its annual Multicultural Night celebration on Thursday, April 27th from 4-7 p.m. at its center located at 25 Cole Avenue, Southbridge.

Classrooms will be decorated and feature a hands-on craft or activity based on a different country, while teachers and staff will help prepare food and drink samples from around the globe. The event is intended to be a true celebration of the diverse cultures which make up our world.  You're never too young to learn about celebrating diversity!

A highlight of the evening is sure to be a performance by the  Southeast Asian Coalition's Worcester Youth Nian Dancers.  The performance is supported in part by a grant by the Southbridge Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. The performance is being presented as part of the Head Start program's year long 25th anniversary celebration.
