This Welcoming Week (September 10-19), The Ridgewood Y will join Welcoming America, other YMCAs and organizations nationwide to celebrate immigrants’ contributions to communities and bring together all residents in a spirit of unity. Each year, Welcoming Week elevates the growing movement of communities that fully embrace new Americans and their contributions to the social fabric of the country. The event is an opportunity for neighbors—both immigrants and U.S.-born residents—to get to know one another and celebrate what unites people as a community.
Visit our Welcome Center during Welcoming Week for fun activities like library corner, interactive sign language and braille activity cards, flags from around the world, “pin your first home” map, recipe cards, music & so much more!
We can wait to see you and to hear everyone’s story.
Friday, 9/17 | 10:00-11:00AM: Preschool reading circle with librarian, Mrs.Ryerson. All are welcome!
