Father’s Day in the USA

This afternoon the Window on America Dnipro's English Speaking Club session was dedicated to the US founding fathers.
The session of the Gabfest Club started with the introduction of the newcomers. After that we talked about the celebration of the Father’s Day in the USA.
The educational part of the session introduced the group to the term “Founding Fathers of the United States of America". The Founding Fathers of the United States are those individuals of the Thirteen Colonies in North America who led the American Revolution against the authority of the British Crown in word and deed and contributed to the establishment of the United States of America.
We read and translated an article about the most prominent personalities, watched the videos about their controversy regarding slaveholding, learned about the fashion of that period to wear powdered wigs as a sign of status.
The surprise for the group was the arrival of the WOA’s volunteer Mr. Kelly. He told the club members about his travels in the East-European countries and had a short Q@A session.
Participants number – 22 persons.
