Last year during Ramadan, the Turkish Community Center invited Eliot Church and 2nd Church to break their Ramadan fast with them at an Iftar Dinner. It was a wonderful experience for all who attended. They showed a short film about Ramadan, and we all had an opportunity to make new friends and learn from each other. They provided a delicious meal. So we are doing it again, and hoping even more families (children are invited too!) will attend. They are planning a program, possibly with some live music, and will be bringing most of the food. We will provide salads and drinks. We have a sign up sheet in Fellowship Hall. Please sign up or let Lissa Gilbert know ( so we know how many to plan for. I’m sure anyone who attended last year will encourage you to attend. It’s one more way to show our support of our Muslim neighbors.
