MERRILLVILLE | The STAND, (Socially Together and Naturally Diverse) club had its 7th International Dinner on Saturday, May 14 at Pierce Middle School.

The International Dinner featured foods from the U.S. Italy and Mexico, along with cultural entertainment that reflected the rich diversity in the town of Merrillville and the region at large.

The event also highlighted the STAND club's 10 Year Anniversary. Two STAND Alumni, Xiomara Vega and Lorna Blondet, shared a social justice event that took place in 2001 which received national attention from the Anti-Defamation League and the Larry Birdsong Foundation.
