Mareewan — Friend of Immigration Clinic

mareewan Mareewan Khaland discovered the LUM Immigration Clinic when he needed some assistance.

Now he has become a volunteer and donor. Mareewan, a well known chef in Lafayette, will be donating the meal for next week’s Cultural Exchange & Potluck Luncheon.

He recently brought some “samples” to the LUM office for our volunteers & staff. {Pictured are Joe Micon, LUM executive director, Mareewan Khaland, and Susan Brouillette, LUM Immigration Clinic director.}

Tables will be set up so that participants will be able to converse in small groups or as individuals. There will be prompts to encourage conversation as well as icebreaker games.

Participants are encouraged to bring a dish and to make a label with the cook’s first name, nationality, the name of the dish, the country where it originated.

RSVPs are preferred but not required.
