HOUSE NEWS: Last Roundtable of the semester, extra help needed this week
The highlight of this week will be our last Roundtable of the year, featuring Iris Zielske, former community member and UF graduate. She will lead us in a discussion about her decision to go to Tanzania to work at an orphanage there rather than immediately pursue her profession as an engineer. She’ll also share about her former experience as a summer volunteer at Hananasif Orphanage and the plans for her current trip (see a video of Iris describing Hananasif here). We invite and would LOVE to see those of you who are graduating and leaving town this semester as well as those who have made similar decisions to Iris’ or are considering the possibilities – and everyone else of course. Please bring a dish to share if you can. If you can’t, then come anyway.
We could use a little extra volunteer help this week as John is out of town, particularly in the following projects. Please see “this week” for the other volunteer opportunities and email to let us know if and when you can help.
- Tuesday’s Coffee House – set up and serve, hang out, play cards, checkers or other games.
- Wednesday’s Cafe – We have gotten some beautiful lettuce from the farmers market again this week and need help transforming it, along with some of the other beautiful spring produce we’ve gleaned, into chef salads Let Kelli know if you can stop by at 10 to get things ready (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Friday’s Breakfast Brigade – If your time in Gainesville is winding down, here’s your chance to volunteer one last time at the earliest venue in town.
Thanks as always for all the ways you support us!
Kelli and John
