The Spokane Islamic Center, 6411 East 2nd Ave in Spokane Valley, will hold an open house for the public on Jan. 2, 2016 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

“The open house event will be a great opportunity for neighbors to get together and learn about each other. It will be especially useful for those not yet acquainted with Spokane Muslim families, children, youth and retirees, but also enjoy delicious refreshments from different cultures and good conversation,” said Saleh Elgiadi, a co-organizer of the open house in a press release.

He said there are an estimated 5,000 American Muslims in the Greater Spokane area, and pointed out that they teachers, scientists, law enforcement officials, military personnel, pharmacists and so on, who give back to society everyday.

“Muslims here are Americans in their hearts and in fact – most are born or raised as U.S. citizens,” he said.

Those who wish to attend are asked to RSVP by emailing OpenHouse@SpokaneIslamicCenter.org.
