The Hilltop Passport Party

This afternoon the seminary community celebrated the end of the 2012-2013 school year with an international party for the entire hilltop.  The Vietnamese, Hispanic, Filipino, and Hawaiian and Samoan communities provided appetizers.  The Americans were represented by an international wine and cheese bar.

After the appetizers, the community enjoyed BBQ, salads, deserts and a variety of drinks.  Most important of all, though, the seminarians, graduates and their families, faculty, staff, and employees enjoyed one another's company before heading into the summer break.
