The Belgian Heritage Center, 1255 County DK in Brussels, will hold its annual booyah and bread lunch on April 28, 11am – 2pm. Booyah, a hearty soup typically cooked in outdoor kettles, is a traditional mainstay at gatherings in the Belgian settlement area.
All proceeds will help the Belgian Heritage Center to preserve and promote the area’s distinctive culture, history and architecture. In keeping with that mission, a volunteer will be scanning family and community photographs from the Belgian area. Photo owners should include as much identifying information as possible – people’s names, location and the approximate year – and the images will become part of the center’s collection. This year the center is especially seeking historic images of women working in the home or on the farm for its Belgian Women at Work project.The costs of $9 per adult and $5 per child ages four to 12 (free for children ages three and younger) includes booyah, bread, dessert and a beverage. Take your own container to purchase a takeout bowl for $4.
