5:30 pm Myanmar Dinner and Fundraiser
Sunday, March 04, 2018, 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Myanmar Teachers Welcome Back Dinner and Fund Raiser
Sunday, March 4, 5:30-7:30 Parish Hall
Please join us in welcoming back our “Fab Four” Global Faith teachers from Holy Spirit who returned in February from teaching spoken English to Myanmar teachers. Hear about their experiences and help the Social Concerns Committee continue with this helping project through the Studer Trust educational programs in Myanmar.
The Dinner: 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
The Project: We are hoping to raise a total of $2,000 which will send school children in 5 rural Myanmar schools on field trips to visit several historical sites and events they would not otherwise experience. We already have $400 in contributions and a Butterfly Grant of $300, leaving $1300 to raise.
The Program: There will be a slide show and presentations by the Holy Spirit teachers on their recent experiences in Myanmar. The first Myanmar English teaching trip was in 2015, and a wonderful program about life in the villages and the teaching experience was provided upon the teachers’ return.
Live Auction: A brief auction of clothing and souvenirs from South East Asia will be held.
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 invited.
Costs: We are hoping that a total of 50 individuals or families will contribute $25 each so that we can reach the goal of $1300. 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 .
