What would you like to get out of joining this group? Conversely, do you have anything special that you would like to share with the group?

I would like to meet people who value diversity, and who have an interest in other cultures. And of course having fun is a good idea too. ;-) I love all kinds of Asian food, so I also look forward to some good dining adventures.

Would you consider joining us for a community service outing? Would you volunteer for a social/community event such as Tet (Lunar New Year)?

Yes to both questions. I've been involved with many Vietnamese community service events and social/community events over the years - in three cities now. It's been a lot of fun. With this meetup, I hope to share the experience of volunteering.

Are you bilingual? If so, would you consider providing translation assistance for a community service event (e.g. a health fair, Citizenship Day for new immigrants)?

While I do not speak Vietnamese, I have tried to learn in the past, and would be open to leaning more in the future. Previously, I have hosted meetups (Baltimore group) where our group provided bilingual volunteers (I usually help out in other ways).

Introduction

Hello Everyone! I started this group because I've been involved with the Vietnamese community for many years, and I love the culture, the language, and the food. I look forward to celebrating Vietnamese culture with you all!
