Multicultural Night

February 22nd 7 pm

Want to be a GLOBAL HERO? The Multicultural Night committee is looking for volunteers to host foreign country tables. We have 20 countries represented, but we’d like more. Over 30 languages are spoken at Glebe, and we would love to have them all represented! The displays can be elaborate or simple, and you do not have to be from a foreign country to participate. Families have represented countries they have visited or lived in. For more information, contact Sarah Bogdanovich ( or 727-421-7321).

We also need volunteers to help with set-up, registration, and clean-up at Multicultural Night – please sign up here:
