Sunshine Garden Celebrates "Bite of Dragon Boat Festival"

On June 16th forty elderly from CISC's Sunshine Garden Senior Day Care Center participated in the "Bite of Dragon Boat Festival".  The event was part of a seasonal Chinese celebration program at Sunshine Garden to celebrate some of the more popular Chinese holidays.  The participating seniors had the opportunity to try over ten different traditional Chinese dishes related to the Dragon Boat Festival from different provinces all throughout China.

 Look at all of this delicious food!

Events like "The Bite of the Dragon Boat Festival" are just some of the activities that CISC provides for immigrant seniors and helps them to gradually ease in to their new lives in America by providing culture that is familiar to them.
