We had a fantastic time at CIRI today working with the Girls Club. We played games, talked about a book for our book club (we are going to read The Story of My Life by Helen Keller), and made beaded bookmarks. The girls loved beading so much we are going to do it again next month (next time they want to make jewelry). Thanks to Vanessa and Holly for attending, and for Vern for helping me select a group game. Pictures here:
We are thrilled to be promoting our movie night in March. Josh Shelov (director) and Luis Mancheno (immigration lawyer and activist) are going to be in the First Church Sanctuary on March 14 at 7 PM to screen and discuss their film Refuge: Hombres Nuevos. We hope to see you there!
If you are looking for another way to be involved, we are looking for volunteers monthly to help out with the childcare at nOURish Bridgeport ESL.
Our next date is March 5.
Thanks for your support.
