5:30 pm Myanmar Dinner and Fundraiser
Sunday, March 04, 2018, 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Please join us in welcoming back our four teachers from Holy Spirit who returned home on February 6th from teaching spoken English to Myanmar teachers. Hear about their experiences and help the Social Concerns Committee continue with a project to raise a total of $2,000 for field trips for 125 rural Myanmar school children. Students there are limited to classroom learning and a few books. Many do not travel beyond walking distance of their villages. Several day trips will enable them to experience the geography, history and life in Mandalay and other cities and historic sites for a holistic education. We already have $400 in contributions and a Butterfly Grant of $300, leaving $1,300 to raise.
There will be a slide show and presentations by the Holy Spirit teachers on their recent experiences in Myanmar. A brief auction of clothing and souvenirs from Myanmar will also be held. The main course will be an Asian Rice Dinner with many side dishes of Asian food. If you would like to make and contribute a side dish, please call Bob or Patti and let them know what you will be bringing.
Who May Attend: Everyone is welcome. Adults, children and families are encouraged to attend. Come see an interesting presentation with fresh information from Myanmar and experience new foods. Reservations for the event are encouraged since attendance will be limited to 80.
Costs: We are asking for contributions of $25 from individuals and families so that we can reach the goal of $1,300. However, no one will be turned away, and a free will offering may be donated instead. We are hoping that 10 “angels” will come forward with $50 contributions in order to complete the needed funding.
Reservations and information: Contact Patti Beckley or Bob Deaton through the church office, 542-2167 or .
