Korean Bell Garden to be built in our district
This week, I had a chance to visit Meadowlark BotanicalÂ Gardens to learn about the Korean Bell Garden that's being built on the property.Â Paul Gilbert, the executive director of Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority gave me a tour of the park and introduced me to the carpenters from Korea who are here to build the pavillion.
As a Korean American state legislator, I'm very pleased to learn that the only Korean bell of this nature will be housed inÂ the 35thÂ District that I am honored to represent in Richmond!Â I'm looking forward to having this project completed so that our constituents can come and learn more about the cultures and traditions of Korea.
Here's Paul's blog post about our visit:

This project is being funded by the Korean American Cultural Committee, with private donations and financial support from the Republic of Korea.
