The cafeteria of the L.B. Morris Elementary School in Jim Thorpe was standing-room only, thanks to a large turnout of visitors to the school's recent Multicultural Night.

The cafeteria was filled with many colorful displays and items of interest from countries all over the globe, created by seventh-grade students.

Each of these projects overflowed with facts, figures, photographs, flags, maps, recipes, and something that was a real crowd-pleaser, samples of ethnic foods distinctive to each country.

Those who visited and participated in the evening's event could see first-hand, the differences or similarities in the diversity of cultures from all parts of the world.

To add an extra touch of realism to their country's cultural display, some of the students dressed up in apparel distinctive to that country.
