YOU ARE INVITED to meet (and bid farewell) to Claudette and Joselyne, the young Rwandan women whose summer exchange you have so strongly supported.

PLEASE JOIN US at the home of Linda Mellis, for a potluck dinner on Wednesday, Aug. 5 at 6 pm to celebrate the end of this year's exchange.

Claudette and Joselyne will be returning home on August 8 after a very successful six weeks of study and training at the Chicago Freedom School, and of experiencing our city and people. They will be continuing their work at the Kigali Freedom School that they helped create.

We hope you can join them, their host families, teachers, friends and supporters! RSVP if you can come. Please bring food and drink to share.

They are here! ;)

Claudette and Joselyne (her 15 year old friend) are in Chicago for
several weeks to attend the Freedom School.

We are so excited to see them!

Next week they will be moving to Georgeanne's house from where they are now. We
would like to arrange a get together between now and when they
leave on Aug 8.
