North Manchester Fellowship

North-Manchester-Text-Flat-e1276258019119The North Manchester FOR and the Scout Fuller Fund for Social Justice will host a benefit coffeehouse on April 2 at the Manchester Church of the Brethren to support two Iraqi students studying at Manchester College. Hajer Dlame will be a senior next fall and Yousra Kamoona will be a junior. Both women are studying computer science and are deeply involved in campus life at the college. The coffeehouse will feature a tribute to Ken Brown (founder of the local FOR), Middle Eastern food, music by Greg Clark, Paul Fry-Miller, David Hupp, Brian Kruschwitz and LuAnne Harley. We’ll also offer a silent auction that includes items such as a Riverbridge Electric service call, a peace pole, computer service calls, and hostas from the McFadden Garden. Contact Julie Garber if you have a quality auction item to contribute. Suggested monetary contributions for the evening range from $5-$25 at the door, purchase of an auction item, or a single contribution to the FOR (write Iraqi Student Project on the memo line). Join us for an evening of music, food, and fellowship, and participate in a small way in rebuilding Iraq. Auction Items
