What Unites Us! A collaborative program to celebrate the immigrant experience, build community and cross-cultural understanding, and promote healthy living for aging residents of the City of Boston.
Attendees will begin the program at Heritage Park on the Greenway with a community leader sharing his or her immigrant experience. Attendees will then join us for a meditative walk around the labyrinth. Then we'll walk to The KITCHEN for a seasonal cooking demonstration and free lunch prepared by chefs from some of Boston’s neighborhood restaurants. Each program highlights a country of origin.
This program is FREE for attendees age 50+. RSVP here to let us know you will attend.
