Cambodian Buddhists listen to a monk as he performs a dedication ceremony to their ancestors in Cambodian language during a moment of Wanabat, which is the second day of the three day new year celebration.

Observers plant sticks of incense in the mounds, each one representing an ancestor or loved one they wish to bless in the next life. As one of the most important Cambodian new year festival traditions, the mounds represent Culamuni Cetiya, the stupa at Tavatimsa, where the Buddha's hair and diadem are buried.

Five separate moves were required during the renovation of the courthouse. During all of these moves, an old cabinet full of files dating as far back as 1860 from the Sturgeon Court of Common Pleas was found. Volunteers will soon help to create an online database for the general public to access online.
