Meadow Hill GEMS School Hosts 5th Annual Culture Fair
Meadow Hill GEMS School hosted their 5th Annual Culture Fair this week. This event marks their annual student-run production and their largest event of the year! The event featured over 70 student showcases, with over 300 people in attendance. The families all come together and share beautiful displays, food from their countries and outfits that represent their cultures. Each year Meadow Hill is proud to showcase many guest performers. Thank you to the Newburgh Salvation Army Steel Drum Band, Baba Kazi Oliver, Traditional Mexican Dancing students from NFA, Orange County firefighters pipes & Drums, and Grace Figueroa a Meadow Hill alumna and current student at NFA.
Each year Meadow Hill's Culture Fair continues to grow, with generous donations from the 15 local restaurants & stores. The bistro had an awesome display of desserts, which are vital to the success and are truly appreciated. Thank you to Mrs. Livolsi & Mrs. Candal for organizing the Culture Fair! Hats off to all of the volunteers who made the night possible!
