3rd Annual Summer Camp, Alexandria, VA (July 26-August 2, 2014)
The students had a blast at our 3rd annual summer camp in Virginia. We are grateful to have Legacies of War with us each year to teach our student about the secret war in Laos and about the UXO. The highlight of the summer was the trip to D.C. The favorite song of the summer was Kup Toom Luang Prabang!!! Thank you to all of our parent volunteers who make camp possible each year. Thank you!!
10th Annual Cultural Show: A Year of Remembrance (September 27, 2014)
The 10th anniversay of LHF was a year of remembrance and reflection. We reflected on the successes that we have achieved in the last ten years as well as remembered three very special people in the LHF’s family: Pom Khampradith, board member of LHF and president of the Pacific Northwest Chapter: Sovani Meksavan, board member of LHF, and Phonekeo Chinyavong, volunteer and parent of LHF student. We reflected and honored the three family members that we lost as well as celebrated their lives with music, dance, and food.
