You don't have to buy a plane ticket, or book passage on the Queen Marry to learn more about world cultures.
You can do it right here in Pottstown this Thursday, Oct. 24.
That's when the Pottstown School District's Diversity Committee will host Heritage Day on from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Pottstown High School.
According to grants administrator Sue Yocum, Heritage Day is a free event open to the public and sponsored by the School District's Diversity Committee.
The purpose of the event is to build awareness of cultural heritages within the community.
"This is the first committee-sponsored Heritage Day however we did sponsor a 'Flavors of the World' event last April which was attended by over 300 people," Yocum wrote in an e-mail to The Mercury.
The Diversity Committee was formed by the school district several year's ago. It has members from our school staff and from the community.
The purpose of the committee is to encourage cultural and diversity awareness among students, staff and the community.
In addition to international foods presented by the culinary arts students at Pottstown High School, music will be provided by Pottstown High School's World Music Ensemble and the Choral Department.
Dancing will be presented by the Pottstown Dance Theatre.
