Bhutanese Community Association of Akron, Inc.

News: Bhutanese Cultural Program



In an effort to preserve and promote the Bhutanese community's culture and tradition, the Bhutanese Community Association of Akron (BCAA) sponsored a cultural program on October 30, 2011 at the VFW Firestone Post 3383 near Nesmith Lake in Akron.

The event featured breakfast and lunch, an honors ceremony, as well as singing and dancing provided by our youth for the entertainment of approximately 500 BCAA members and 30 other guests.  The Bhutanese community was happy to showcase its rich and varied culture for the enjoyment of all.  Participants ranged from 6 weeks old to over 90 years of age.

This was an opportunity for the Bhutanese community to formally thank all of the institutions, individuals, and employers who have assisted refugees in the Akron area.

Please know that we may have missed some individuals, employers, and institutions because of lack of information provided for this program.  That was our fault and we are really sorry for that but definitely we will include them in future programs.
