Hmong Costumes

During the month of November, the Pella Public Library will host an exhibit of some of the Hmong artwork in local collections. Former Central Professor Phil Webber says that they set out to honor the culture of a group in the community, and because the Hmong have been our neighbors in Pella for over thirty years, they chose to pay tribute to them. Members of Pella’s Hmong community are encouraged to come and share their personal experiences about coming to America, and the memories associated with the artwork. That event will be Saturday November 2nd at 10:30 am with a special program in the Library to which all community members are invited.
