On Friday night the Bixby School held it's International Night in it's Gym. There was a chance to sample the food that represented the many heritages of the families who attend the school. There were two presentation of live music that shows the diversity of the Borough of Bogota. First, Eamonn Radburn of the Bergen County Firefighter Pipe Band & a Member of Bogota Volunteer Fire Dept. Engine Co. #2, perform several numbers on his bag pipes. More live music was provided by Ana Sofia Villamar accompanied by her son Joshua sang traditional songs of Venezuela.
Students had a chance to make an Adinkra Cloth with the help of Deborah Nettingham. The Adinkra Cloths are a traditional shawl to be worn by Ashanti royalty at special, or religious ceremonies. These cloths would be stamped with traditional Ashanti symbols.
