Lowell Elder Care Adult Day Health Care Center celebrated Cambodian New Year with a weeklong series of events beginning April 13, including a fashion show. Cambodian Americans gather for celebrations of Cambodian culture, usually filled with Cambodian food such as the "sach-go ang" or beef skewers, the sounds accompanying the traditional "robams" or dances, and the humming of Buddhist monks' chants. The events at Lowell Elder Care celebrated the rich culdrureof those who have been uprooted from their homes in Cambodia and allowed the newer Cambodian American generation to hold on to a piece of their identity.
