A Korean Thanksgiving 

At the Goie Center 

A spirit of gratitude and a spirit of connection infused Korean Connection's first-ever Chuseok event from start to finish.

Chuseok, which means autumn eve in Korean, is a major, three-day harvest festival that has been celebrated for centuries in Korea as thanks for the year's good harvest. Korean Connection chose in 2019 to formally celebrate Chuseok for the first time in thanks to West Michigan for its many years of support and participation in the organization's community events.
