"We have this event for two key reasons one we want to thank the community for their support year round we have an amazing community that welcomes them and get them started with their new life” said Michelle Pospichal, Grant Coordinator CSI.

A legal refugee is someone who has fled his or her country because of a well founded fear of persecution.

"I came as a refugee in 1983 so when I came and moved to Idaho I started to get involved with the refugee services” said Bari Fedaie, involved with the CSI program.

"We are supporting the memory of my country that I'm originally from all of this reminds me of the 45-years of my life that I spend in my country and I'm very happy right here” said Dijana Krdzalic, involved with the CSI program.

"It's a great chance for people to get out and learn about who their new neighbors are, to meet them, learn about their past and history” said Michelle Pospichal, Grant Coordinator CSI.
