The Vernon Police Athletic League gymnasium was visited by hundreds of kids and their families on Saturday, who came to appreciate a broad sampling of international cuisine as well as cooking lessons, arts and crafts, ethnic dance presentations, and medieval swordplay.

The theme for the Vernon PAL 2014 Cultural Day was “It’s a Small, Small World” and the event was hosted by The Vernon PAL Youth Leadership group.

The entertainment was geared towards children in grades K through 6, although all were welcome.

According to PAL director Jeanne Buffalino, the group of youth leadership students who have spearheaded this program will graduate this June.

“Since the inception of the youth leadership council some nine years ago, this has been the most productive group of students I have had the pleasure of working with," Buffalino said. "They certainly deserve some recognition for their accomplishments.”
