HOUSE NEWS: Celebrate our anniversary with us on Sunday!
Consider this your personal invitation to the GCW’s anniversary celebration this weekend! On Sunday, October 5, from 1-4pm, we’ll gather–old and new folks, former and current community members, volunteers, guests, visitors, EVERYONE–to celebrate our 4th year in Jubilee House and our 8th year since we started way back in 2000. Come to hear stories about how miserable our first house was (Jeremiah House, which resembled the pit we imagined Jeremiah was thrown into thousands of years ago), our dreams and hopes for the future, listen to music, bring your favorite food or drink to share (potluck-style), and also enjoy the delicious food provided by our good and faithful friends from Servants of Christ Anglican Church. Especially in times like these, it is important for us to still come together and celebrate, with joy, with gratitude and just because. So please come by anytime Sunday between 1-4pm and share the afternoon with us!
We continue our “What I Did This Past Summer” theme at the Roundtable this Thursday at 6pm. Our own Iris Zielske spent this past summer doing research and working with orphaned children in Tanzania. She’ll share both stories of the people she met and her own experiences. We look forward to you joining us! Bring a dish to share if you can or just show up!
And Tuesday (today when you receive this I think!), we will NOT be having Dorothy’s Cafe. Instead we’ll be hosting a special brunch for the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, a group of farmworkers and their allies from Southwest Florida, who have taught us much about dignity, solidarity and the power of justice. We’ll be hosting them at 11am on Tuesday; feel free to come and help get the brunch prepared at 10am or join us at the brunch at 11am.
In gratitude and peace,
