Councilman Johnson encourages community to celebrate at the Americana Community Center 25th World Festival

June 3, 2015

Louisville – For the last 25 years, it has been a celebration that brings the local community together to share and celebrate the cultural heritages of the people in the Louisville Metro area.
          This Saturday, Councilman Dan Johnson encourages the community to come out and experience the Americana Community Center’s 25th Annual World Festival as it continues the tradition of sharing the history of all members of the community.

          “This is a special Americana World Festival this year for District 21 as it celebrates its Silver Anniversary.  We know the Americana Community Center is an invaluable resource for not only District 21 where over 100 countries are represented, but for our entire city,” says Councilman Dan Johnson (D-21). “1 in 7 Louisville residents are immigrants and we are proud of this diversity.  I wish Edgardo Mansilla and his team at Americana a great World Festival and many more to come.”   

         The Americana Community Center provides a spectrum of services to the diverse individuals and families of the Louisville Metro area, including refugees, immigrants, and those born in the U.S. These services enable people to realize their individual potential, build strong families, and create a healthy and supportive community for all.
