International Dinner Brings Tastes From Around the
Aroma and flavors from all parts of the globe will fill the air February 23 when the
Lewis-Clark State College International Club hosts its annual International Dinner.
About 50 international and American students are involved in planning the dinner. This
year's theme is "Around the World to Lewiston," Melissa Nelson, coordinator of
the event, said.
The dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Williams Conference Center on campus. Doors will
open at 6 p.m. Cost is $12 for adults, $7 for students and $5 for children younger than 8.
Community members are encouraged to secure their tickets early because the dinner
traditionally sells out in advance, according to Nelson.
This year's participants will sample entrees and desserts from Japan, Korea, Myanmar, El
Salvador, Brazil and Africa, all prepared by the students.
The evening's program will feature Brazilian music and dancing, a Tai Chi demonstration,
Korean songs, an International Fashion show, bagpipe music, and more.
The International Enlightenment Award will be presented by members of the International
Club honoring an individual whom they believe is particularly supportive of global
understanding. This is the third year of the award's existence. The recipient's name will
be engraved on a permanent plaque displayed in the Student Union Building.
Another highlight of the evening will be the raffle of an original sculpture by Sharon
Taylor-Hall entitled "Soldiers Coming." Tickets for the raffle are $1 or 6 for
Proceeds from the event will go towards the International student scholarship fund.
