                      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.
