Fatima Said: Thank you for supporting Welcoming Week
On behalf of Project FINE, I would like to thank the Winona and St. Charles communities for their support and involvement in Welcoming Week (Sept. 14-23). This annual celebration recognizes the contributions of immigrants and refugees and the role communities play to foster greater welcome for everyone. Over 450 people attended our Welcoming Week events, which included film screenings, diversity training, community celebrations and our Citizenship Day Celebration.
I would like to especially thank the City of Winona and the City of St. Charles for their partnership on Welcoming Week, as well as the Winona State University Inclusion and Diversity Office, Central Lutheran Church, Winona County Historical Society, Winona Public Library, Hmong American Student Association, and Mike Munson for their support of our events.
Thank you again for your support, and I hope to see you all at our 2019 Welcoming Week events!
Fatima Said, Project FINE Executive Director
