[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E1805] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING ETHIOPIAN COMMUNITY SERVICES AND THE ETHIOPIAN COMMUNITY AND CULTURAL CENTER ______ HON. ZOE LOFGREN of california in the house of representatives Wednesday, September 5, 2007 Ms. ZOE LOFGREN of California. Madam Speaker, I rise to honor San Jose-based Ethiopian Community Services and Oakland, California-based Ethiopian Community & Cultural Center for their joint efforts in organizing a celebration of the Ethiopian New Year and Millennium. During this celebration, the community will share its centuries-old traditions and culture including its alphabet, calendar, music, arts, food and coffee. In addition it will give others an opportunity to experience this rich and diverse historical event and explore and make new friends. The celebration of the Ethiopian New Year and Millennium is occurring in my congressional district at the Guadalupe River Park in Downtown San Jose, CA. Because of the rich diversity of San Jose, it is a special honor to further emphasize the open minds and warm hearts of the constituents I represent. I commend both organizations for their hard work in this glorious event and extend my warmest wishes for many more years of cooperation and success. ____________________
