You're Invited! CSE International Fest 2018

We cordially invite you to "cruise" the water with us and learn different things about various cultures during our Annual International Festival. We will come together to celebrate the many cultures of the world. The uniqueness of cultures will be expressed by way of entertainment and serving ethnic food dishes. Donate $5 (per person) to receive a "boarding pass" to taste the foods of 50 different countries. Kindly R.S.V.P. so that we may plan accordingly. Hope to "sea" you there!
