LIMA — Take a trip around the world and never leave Lima Senior High. That opportunity is available on Sunday to those participating in the Fifth annual International Expo.“We're calling this year's event Passport to the World” because of all the countries represented,” said Connie Hornung, chairwoman of the expo, which serves as a fundraiser for Lima-Allen County Neighborhoods in Partnership.“This event floors people every year. Most don't have a clue to the numbers there are in the community from different countries. You may not know anything about some of these countries, but we have food here as well as dancing and activities and information from them to share and enjoy,” Hornung said.Indeed, there will be German dancing, as well as the bamboo pole dancing of the Philippines. Nigerian headdresses will be displayed, and African folk tales shared. Scottish poetry will be read, and life in Peru discussed. There will be music of the British Isles, Italian operas, henna handpainting, and Japanese calligraphy.“This is much more fun than learning about the world from reading a book. This allows us to see that while different, people are the same in many ways also. We all want our kids to grow up in a good world, no matter what our national background,” Hornung said.
