Please join us to celebrate Adwa Victory Day and learn about Ethiopian culture.

In 1896, Ethiopian forces defeated the occupying Italian forces at the city of Adwa, preventing Ethiopia's colonization. The 128th Adwa Victory Day was celebrated this year on March 2nd.  Join us for student presentations, snacks, and a display of Ethiopian cultural artifacts. All ages are welcome.
