International students to host dinner Feb. 23

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - The Multicultural Awareness Group of Lycoming College will hold its 16th annual International Dinner on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Jane Schultz Room.

This year's theme is "Spread Love Around the World." As guests enter the room, they will be given a paper heart that they can write a message on and post on the wall. Students from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Chile, China, Estonia, Germany, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, the United States and Vietnam will host the dinner, with the guidance of Jean Wool, executive assistant for student affairs and MAG adviser.

As a tradition, international students and foreign faculties will prepare dishes from their countries. A silent auction will be held with the proceeds benefiting "A Dime for a Meal," a charity program that raises money to provide food and cooking services for Vietnamese children.
