Sierra Leone Peoples Ambassador to the United States, H.E. Bockari K. Stevens hosted Sierra Leoneans and friends of Sierra Leone to an evening of entertainment in a belated celebration of Sierra Leones 48th Independence Anniversary at his Washington DC residence on May 30, 2009.

In his opening remarks, the Ambassador said it was an opportunity for him to meet Sierra Leoneans, and for Sierra Leoneans to meet with him and other Sierra Leoneans. He urged Sierra Leoneans in the US and Canada to feel comfortable to come to the Sierra Leone Embassy if they need anything from the embassy.

The ambassador introduced Sierra Leone Community leaders, including the representative from the SLPP, Mr. Alpha Saidu Bangura. The representative from Tegloma Mr. Victor Tarmoh as well as the Acting Chairman of the APC North America Branch Mr. Leslie Allen. He also introduced a new non-profit organization called the Sierra Leone Arc of Hope.
