WA State Korean American Day event - Jan 13th
The Washington State Korean-American Day Celebration Foundation cordially invites the community to their 7th Annual WA State Korean Day Cultural Celebration on Monday, January 13th in the Main Dining Room, #9000 Building, at Shoreline Community College ( map).
Governor Chris Gregoire signed the bill on April 9, 2007 designating January 13th as "Korean American Day,” since the history commemorates the first arrival of Korean immigrants to Honolulu, Hawaii on Monday, January 13, 1903. This day honors the accomplishments and contributions of Korean Americans, including the 130,000 people of Korean descent residing in Washington State .
The event is free, but there is a nominal parking fee on campus.
