Patsy Surh O’Connell, a Gig Harbor resident and board member and founder of the Asia Pacific Cultural Center in Tacoma, will lead a tour of the Boo Han Supermarket in Lakewood tomorrow. O’Connell, pictured here (in a photo by News Tribune photographer Lui Kit Wong), will explain ingredients and answer questions.
