Despite being pounded by several snow storms, the Vietnamese community in the Greater Toronto Area has ushered in the Year of the Rat in style. For the last two weeks, January 11 and 18, 2020, members of the Thu Thao Dance Group have had the honor of being part of this annual celebration that brings our community together and share our culture with our fellow Canadians.
