2016 Lunar New Year

You are invited . . .

Part of the mission of the VNCA is to promote awareness and understanding of Vietnamese culture. If you are in the Lubbock area, please join us for our Lunar New Year party on Thursday, February 18, 4-5pm at the Texas Tech International Cultural Center (in the TTU museum “district” along Indiana at 4th St.).

Since this is the Year of the Monkey, here are images from the Virtual Vietnam Archive . . .
