USA Melting Pot January Meeting
The USA Melting Pot club will hold its ninth meeting at the Troy Public Library Thursday, January 17, 2013, from 7-9 p.m.
African American Culture and Skiing
Mrs. Joya Shepard, Personnel Director of Orion Assembly and Pontiac Metal Fabricating at General Motors, will speak on African American culture, history, food, and traditions, including their contributions to education, science, literature and music.
The hobby topic this month will be cross-country and downhill skiing, with input from members of a local ski club. They will share techniques for both sports and tell where to ski locally, in Michigan and elsewhere in North America.
The new USA Melting Pot club is unique in building and crossing bridges between ethnic groups, which already have their own individual clubs. In the past, we’ve had meetings on Chinese culture and bicycle touring, India’s culture and canoeing, Korean culture and camping, German culture, Brazilian culture and held a potluck picnic at the Troy Historic Village.
- To help newcomers assimilate into the USA and mingle with all ethnic groups
- To celebrate ethnic background & cultural identity, including American culture
- To provide a forum for conversational English
- To encourage face to face dialogue in our increasingly technology-dependent world
