We kicked off this Khmer New Year with the annual Khmer Flag Raising event held at City Hall. The youth performed a traditional Cambodian dance, played instruments and sang the United States and Cambodia national anthems. The weather was gorgeous which made the morning a more pleasant experience.

A special thanks to the City of Lowell, MA for hosting and Lowell Community Charter Public School for coordinating the event.

Community Hero - Kowith Kret

Mr. Kret, a Cambodian genocide survivor from the Khmer Rouge era (between 1975 to 1979) and a community activist is the visionary behind the project “More Than a Number”. He was from Khao I Dang Refugee camp, in Thailand who arrived in Belmont, MA with his younger brother on the Thanksgiving Day, in 1981.

He was the first Cambodian Bilingual teacher at South Boston High School and Khmer Language Proficiency tester for the Boston public schools for 4 years. He was also the Case Manager for the Catholic Charities of Boston in the Unaccompanied Minors program.

Mr. Kret was the first bilingual-bicultural community manager at Solomon Mental health Center/DMH-DMR, in Lowell, in 1988. He is currently with the Department of Developmental Services, Lowell Area office as the Bilingual Human Service Coordinator.

Mr. Kret is an active member and effective advocate in the Khmer community at large. He volunteered his time as host for WLLH radio, co-anchor of Khmer television program for the New England community, and is the present host of the Khmer Arts & Culture & Literature program segment of the Sunday radio, “Voice of Cambodian Children/WUML”, for the last 27 years.

Recently, Kowith was the recipient of 2014’s Community Hero Award from the Asian American Commission of the Commonwealth of Mass, which recognizes an individual who has displayed selfless commitment to the issues and events affecting Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders, and who has contributed efforts towards the betterment of AAPIs without self-promotion or fanfare.

We are very honored to have Mr. Kret as part of our community and will be presenting him the Community Hero Award at the gala. We would also like to wish him a happy retirement next year!

Dear friends, it's finally happening. Thank you to the support of the Smith Family Foundation, our garage is being torn down to provide more parking for our community members to use our services and programs. Though there may be no parking the next couple of days, there will be plenty when the demolition is done. #cmaalowell #cmaa #nonprofit
