Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. May 24, 2015


The 1st Annual Pennsylvania Oromo Day Community celebration was held yesterday, May 23rd 2015 at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Oromos and their families form across Pennsylvania and neighboring states wearing colorful Oromo cultural clothing attended the celebration.

 The event started with a soccer match where a team from Philadelphia played against a team from Lancaster. The visiting team from Lancaster winning the contest 3-0.

After the soccer match was concluded, lunch was served by the event organizers and volunteers and the second part of the event started with a moment of silence to commemorate the perished lives of many young Oromos and their neighbors in South Africa’s xenophobia, the brutal beheading of our immigrants by ISIS in Libya and the drowning of hundreds of migrants from capsize boats in the meditation sea.  The event continued with Oromo traditional blessings by two elders followed by entertainment from Oromo children with their cultural clothing, presenting a beautifully choreographed Oromo dances to a great admiration of the crowd.

The current chairperson of the Oromo Community of Pennsylvania, Mr. Mitiku Tolassa opened the event with a welcome message and a short speech about the organizations’ current status and its strategic directions to be an effective part of Oromos in the state and beyond. He also stressed the need for everyone’s effort to strengthen the community organization.

A delegation led by Dr. Desta Yabassa, the president of Oromo Community Organization of DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) attended the event and Dr. Desta shared the rich experience of Oromo community organizations of the DMV area and discussed the rewards and challenges of such organizations. Representatives from national and regional Oromo organizations for youth and woman also attended the event and spoke to the gathering about the importance of community organizations. The speakers stressed the need for a greater role of woman and the youth in strengthening local communities that could do great things not only to their communities but all Oromos at large.

The community organizers recognized an outstanding community member, Dr. Haile Hirpa for his relentless commitment and awarded him with Commitment Award.
