Black History Month Celebration
SCCC recognizes that every day is a day to celebrate Black communities. We start in February with #BlackHistoryMonth, and continue throughout the year to raise awareness and celebrate Black community achievements every day as part of our heritage, our current society, and the future of our country.
In 2023, Scadding Court has planned various activities to celebrate Black History.
Lunar/Chinese New Year
Scadding Court celebrates Lunar/Chinese New Year every year as a part our community celebrations. The first day of the Lunar New Year is the first new moon of the first day of the year in the traditional Chinese calendar. In this calendar, months are based on lunar cycles and Chinese New Year usually falls between January 21 and February 21.

Diwali, also known as the “festival of lights”, is one of the most important Hindu celebrations of the year. It celebrates the victory of good over evil, and the uplifting of spiritual darkness.
At Scadding Court we celebrate this festival by gathering together, with presentations, music and delicious food.
Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year in Islamic culture. Muslims observe the month of Ramadan, to mark that Allah, or God, gave the first chapters of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad in 610. During Ramadan, Muslims fast, abstain from pleasures and pray to become closer to God. It is also a time for families to gather and celebrate.
SCCC celebrates Ramadan and Iftar every year as a part of our community celebration. We would like to wish a Ramadan Mubarak to members of our community who observe this holy month! We hope these 30 days of fasting bring you joy and renewed faith.
