Rice Harvest Day… in Philipstown

On Sept. 12, longtime Philipstown residents Sokhara Kim and Chakra Oeur invited fellow refugees and immigrant friends to celebrate one of Cambodia’s most important national holidays: Rice Harvest Day.

Somehow, on their Route 9 property, the couple managed to nurture and grow rice, which was cut, harvested and pounded with traditional tools while everyone celebrated with favorite dishes, music and dance.
