Haiti's Independance Day

Come and celebrate Haiti‘s independance day on January 1st 2019 with the Haitian community. Think you might be feeling too lazy after partying hard on New Year’s Eve? Or maybe energized and want to start the new year with a bang? Either way, you need to start 2019 with our famous soup giraumon a.k.a. soup joumou. 
For those who are new to soup joumou, it’s basically a squash soup we prepare specifically for Independence Day. 
Along with the soup, you will learn about our history and how Haiti gained Independence in 1804.

There will be music, dominoes and other games, drinks, good people and soup. And guess what??? The soup joumou is FREE!!! (Although a donation to the CHCA would be greatly appreciated). 
Please confirm if you are coming (for portion control! We need to prepare LOTS of soup!)
