The ribbon cutting ceremony to inaugurate Quen Thi communal house in Cao Duong commune, Luong Son district.

The communal house had long been built in the field of Quen Thi village, serving as a place where religious activities took place to show reverence to ancestors, gods and village founders.

In 1951, French colonialists attacked the village, killed locals for robbery and burned the communal house. By 1996, locals voluntarily contributed their money and efforts to rebuild the communal house at its old campus. However, through time, the communal house degraded seriously. Thanks to the support of departments and sectors in the province and district, Most Venerable Thich Dao Thinh from Khai Nguyen pagoda encouraged Buddhist monks, nuns and sponsors to contribute money to rebuild the communal house. As a result, people in the village and commune provided 40 million VND and working days while 39 households donated land to expand its campus area to over 13,000 square metres. The first phase of the project has been completed with main facilities while the second one is being carried out through capital contributed by organisations and individuals.



People are playing tug of war at the Quen Thi communal house festival.

On the occasion, the communal People’s Committee held art programmes, boat racing, stick pushing and volleyball tournaments./.
