Tegloma Cultural Invasion-Ohio Mini Convention 2009

Tegloma Ohio Chapter who hosted this year's mini convention and the Tegloma International Federation delegates, introduced the Ohio community and other Americans to the rich cultural diversity of Sierra Leone, by putting on a traditional show worthy of a major cultural award. Men and women elegantly decked in elaborately embroidered African costumes, traditional music, traditional food and such popular Sierra Leone masquerades as the "Goboi", "Sowei", and "Nafali", with Cultural dancers led by the musical star Big Joe provided delighted Americans an amazing view of the wealth and depth of Sierra Leone's cultural heritage.

In all fairness to the Tegloma Ohio Chapter, they have raised the bar for mini conventions and their executive and members deserve to be thoroughly commended for hosting and making this year's mini convention such a memorable event. The New England chapter who hosts the main convention later this year has to work really hard to surpass the high level of organizational proficiency exhibited by the Ohio Chapter.
