Welcoming Week featured multicultural events around the region, including picnics, arts and crafts displays, resource expositions, speakers events, and bazaars.
Dr. Page noted, "By working together with our foreign-born residents, we can achieve greater prosperity and make our community the kind of place where diverse people from around the world feel valued and want to put down roots."
