About the Event

Ready to get your gobble on and stuff yourself silly? Americans, non-Americans, family, friends, children, and people you meet on the street are all welcome to share in our special family celebration!

The day will be co-hosted by American Association of Singapore (AAS) and American Women's Association (AWA) held at the beautiful campus of XCL American Academy (XAA), the event's sponsor. The US Navy is helping out, too!  We're doing it right, folks!
