The Middle East Council of the Carolinas (MECC) is announcing its annual celebration featuring this year the Arab American Festival. As always, our festival is about creating a way for people to enjoy themselves and by presenting the best of who we are in an environment of music, dance, food, pastries, games, arts and crafts and other exhibits that appeal to the whole family. Because May 11th is Mother's Day, the MECC believes the Festival provides a perfect venue for families to celebrate a special day together. Ample parking is provided on the campus grounds.

Hope to see you there.
