Community Picnic

Join us June 29, 2013 for the annual APAI Community Picnic at Clement Park
 Shelter G from 11-3pm.
It is a potluck so be sure to bring a dish to share.  The main dish will be provided by the sponsoring organizations. This is a great event to get acquainted with many of the amazing Asian Community organizations in the Denver area.

Please bring a new or gently used backpack to support 
This great non profit organization collects backpacks and school supplies to give to homeless and disadvantaged Denver Public Schools students.  Without these donated backpacks these students resort to using plastic grocery bags to carry their belongings.
