"We want to make the Hmong culture as a resource for the community,” said Chong Charlee, co-coordinator of the open house. “We need a place to house that resource so we can expand it and grow and make it available [to city residents]." 

Organizers say nearly 400 people joined in on the celebration at the open house.
