February 12, 2009: Tet has come and gone, but the photos of BPSOS out in the community are still rolling in. To welcome the Lunar New Year, BPSOS-Maryland staff took their message of immigrant entrepreneurship and pride in Vietnamese traditions to the community festival.

In the shadow of the mighty dancing dragon, BPSOS staff promoted the Maryland office’s RISE Microenterprise Program, which is helping Vietnamese immigrants improve their businesses despite America’s economic troubles.

Below are more photos to remember Tet 2009 in Maryland:
