The program includes cultural performances, a video highlighting the month's activities, an Asian-styled meal and a lecture by Dr. Paul Hillmer, author of "A People's History of the Hmong."
On Saturday, April 30 all families are welcome to attend the Family Fitness Day and Resource Fair from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. at John Muir Middle School in Wausau. The program includes a free lunch, games and activities for all families and an opportunity for families to speak to local organizations about how to live a healthier lifestyle.
