Also see the calendar to the right (Upcoming Events)...

This morning we did a Club Service Project.  Nancy Lyner hosted Maliza Kalema who introduced us to Umoja, MN project which is a camp set up for trans-racially adopted and foster children.  The premise is to  create cultural links so that these young people can understand their backgrounds and discover where they have come from.  So this project,Umoja which means "unity" in Swahili, centered on the continent of Africa.  Did you know there are 54 countries in Africa and each has their own flag.  Our task this morning was to take the little flags and get them ready so that the campers will be able to put the flags on the correct country on the map of Africa.   Once we were done, Maliza asked us some questions to see how much we knew about Africa...and sad to say we didn't know all that much.  And we were not alone...so many of the kids attending the camp don't know about Africa which is their heritage and you can see how important it is for these kids to learn where they came from.  It was fun to do the project and even more rewarding to know that many racially adopted and foster kids can learn that there is more to their history than just slavery.  Thanks to Maliza and Nancy for giving us that opportunity.
Next week Arba -Della Beck will be hosting Kieran McNulty, PhD who is an  anthropology professor at the University of Minnesota.
 
At the conclusion of today's meeting, Jason sent us out, as always ---to Be The Inspiration!
