Eastern Farm Workers to Speak at Oct. Program

On Sunday, Oct. 21, women from the Eastern Farm Workers Association will join us in a dialogue circle. Volunteers, students, and migrants will share information, answer questions, and distribute handouts. The program will take place from 3-5 pm at Jowonio School, 3049 E. Genesee St., Syracuse (parking and entrance in the rear). Programs this year will focus on “understanding the other.” Our first meeting, on Sept. 17, explored ways we view or have viewed people as “the other” and what steps we might take so that we don’t see them as “the other.”

Teaching New Americans to Sew

Sewing class has begun for the 2018-19 year, led by Jennifer Roberts Crittenden. The current class is composed of students from Burma, Nepal, South Sudan, and Congo. This time each student has good command of English, so they are making rapid progress and choosing projects that fit their family and work needs. You are always welcome to stop by to visit our class on Thursdays starting at 12:15 pm when the city schools are in session. Call Jennifer at 315-633-2817.

We have plenty of donations at this time (and limited storage space), but if you have sewing-related items that you wish to donate, we can give you suggestions of worthwhile non-profit groups that make items for hospitalized children, foster children, homeless men, disabled veterans, people in nursing homes, etc. Nothing should ever go to waste, so please call Jennifer if you are purging items of your own or of someone who can no longer use them.

Book Club to Discuss ‘My Promised Land’

The Oct. 22 meeting of the book club will discuss My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel, by Ari Shavit. This is groundbreaking and authoritative examination of Israel by one of the most influential columnists writing about the Middle East today. The following book club meeting, on Dec. 3, will discuss Salt Houses, by Hala Alyan; it is about Palestine. For information about meeting location, contact Jennifer Roberts Crittenden, 315-633-2817.

Sycamore Hill Gardens Tour

Once again, Sycamore Hill Gardens opened its grounds for our annual fundraiser on May 20. The nearly 40 acres of privately-owned land west of Marcellus include diverse statuary, koi ponds, stonework, a formal garden, a hedge maze and more. Recent plantings of 10,000 trees and shrubs have turned the land surrounding the garden into one of New York State’s largest privately held bird sanctuaries. We welcomed spring (after a very long winter) at these beautiful walmartone login private gardens opened especially for us.
