The Asian Caucus held their annual Christmas Party at Bashford UMC on December 20. It was a great service and time of fellowship. Bishop Hee-Soo presented thoughts on what it meant to be boat people. He and others who spoke were presented with a shawl from India from the delegation that went to India. Together the group sang carols in preparation for the birth of Christ. The food was excellent. There was enough to go around, and more to take home. Rev. Dan Verdegan said, “It was good to be together as an Asian community representing five different Asian nations. We hope to have more gatherings in 2018.”
