KAARI had an event for an 8.15 Liberation Day/Korea Day at CCRI in Warwick on Saturday, August 13, 2016. This event was significant because it was a restoration of the 1979 Korea Day Proclamation. There was a welcoming speech by Korean President Bongsup Cho and the encouragement message by Boston Consul General Sungjoon Eom. Then, Governor Raimondo's ‘Korea Day’ proclamation was read by William Park, Chair of the KAARI Board.

 

The 6th KAARI President Ilseok Ko, who played a significant role in proclaiming Korea Day in 1979, explained the background history of the Korean American Association at the time. The 4th president, Wonjung Lee, reminded that 5th President Seungman Cha designed the KAARI logo.  

 

The second part of the event featured Korean traditional music performances with Gayageum, Geomungo, and Korean classical dance. The large Korean flag behind the stage reminded of the meaning of 'Korea Day.'   

 

After the event, all the guests were invited to a Korean buffet dinner in the CCRI cafetoria. Several students from CCRI's International Club members have helped serve food.

 

Food sponsorship: Zion Korean Church, Korean Catholic Church, The way and life Korean Church, First Korean Church; Asiana Korean Food, Cathay Garden Restaurant, China Inn Restaurant, Ichiban Restaurant, New Sea Shai Restaurant, Sun & Moon Restaurant, Sura Korean B.B.Q. Restaurant;
