On behalf of the Cambodian American Community of Oregon, the Board, and Executive Team, we thank Oregon’s leadership, Governor Kate Brown, and staff for proclaiming April 2018 a month of celebration and memorial for family and friends of our Khmer community.
As we enter the Khmer New Year this week, we as a community must never forget the sacrifices.
Happy New Year!
