Traditional wear

Hoa Sobczynski invited her family and others who were dressed in traditional wear to the front of the stage during the third annual Tết celebration last year.

Borderland resident Hoa Sobczynski will again host what will this year be the fourth annual Tết Vietnamese New Year dinner she plans and cooks along with her family.

Sobczynski, along with her mother and sisters will not only be cooking, but entertaining those who attend the event, taking place at Backus Community Center on the stage Saturday.

The evening will begin at 5:30 p.m with a social hour with dinner being served at 6:30 p.m. The cost to attend is $40 per person. Tickets are available at City Drug or at the Backus office. Seats are limited.

A flyer for the event said that if attendees enjoyed last year’s dinner, this one will be even better.

Last year’s event was capped at 140 guests who enjoyed fresh spring rolls, Bo Kho or beef stew, Cau, Nam Tuyet or snowflake mushroom and seafood soup, and pavlova for dessert.

The event also included Sobczynski’s mother playing Vietnamese songs on the harmonica and a fashion show featuring traditional Vietnamese aìo daÌ, or clothing.
