Day 73: Discussion about CCC on Thursday, May 3, and upcoming bowling fundraiser!

This is an exciting week for many reasons!  This Thursday, May 3rd, at 6:30 p.m. I will be offering a brief presentation about the Camarones Community Coalition, with a focus on the connection to the Meadowood Neighborhood Center here in Madison.  If you are in the Madison, WI area, please check it out (or pass along to others you think may be interested)!  Here are the details:

Building a Sister Neighborhood Center in Rural Ecuador
Thursday, May 3, 2012 at 6:30 p.m.
Meadowood Neighborhood Center, 5734 Raymond Road

Curious about the developing relationship between Meadowood Neighborhood Center (MNC) and a rural coastal city in Ecuador?  Come learn about some of the initiatives former MNC staff member Emily Kalnicky has been working on with her small, Wisconsin-based non-profit, Camarones Community Coalition.  Emily will share some future goals and ideas, and ways you might be able to get involved with literacy initiatives, educational programming, cultural exchanges, potable water, or other projects linking the two communities.  Emily will offer a brief presentation, followed by a question and answer/discussion with the audience.  She is curious to hear your ideas and answer your questions before she heads down again on May 8 to Ecuador for 4 months of on-the-ground strategic discussions leading to the construction of a sister community center to the MNC.  Light refreshments will be available.

For more information, please contact Emily

Then, if you happen to be in the San Francisco, California area, check out the bowling fundraiser happening Saturday, May 12th!  (This is a change from the originally planned bowling fundraiser scheduled for May 4th).  Here are the details for this event that one of my amazing friends is organizing!!
