Community Connections

The Hickory International Council celebrates and promotes diversity and multiculturalism in our community.
Enrolling in a Tai Chi class or lunching in a Mexican restaurant are fun ways to learn about traditions from other parts of the world; however, the HIC recognizes that crossing cultural boundaries is usually more challenging when linguistic and intercultural differences are involved.
The HIC  provides the community with international news and cultural information through internet resources on its web-site.

Keep up with the latest information from home and abroad in many different languages.
