New York (TADIAS) – As Ethiopians prepare to usher in the year 2002 later this week, official ceremonies are scheduled to mark the holiday in San Jose, California, and DeKalb County, Georgia.
According to a press release by the Ethiopian Americans Council (EAC), the fifth annual Ethiopian flag raising ceremony will take place in San Jose on Tuesday, September 8, 2009. The Mayor, Vice Mayor, and several City Council members are expected to attend.
In honor of the Ethiopian-American community in Georgia, the DeKalb county government CEO Burrell Ellis has declared September 13, 2009 to be “Ethiopian Day,” and this year’s celebration will include a soccer tournament as well as cultural celebrations.
