‘Sharing Holiday Traditions’ Theme of Dec. 16 Program

“Sharing Holiday Traditions” will be the theme of our program on Sunday, Dec. 16, from 3-5 pm. Our co-founder Betsy Wiggins will host our holiday get-together at her home on 305 Carleton Drive in Syracuse. We will gather around the yule log in her fireplace in a comfortable setting to share our individual stories of the traditions we hold dear from our varied cultures. We will also be sharing food, as that is always a part of our gatherings. If you have a certain food item that is particular to your tradition and culture, please bring it—and be prepared to informally share its significance it in your culture. Also, please bring any “props” that go along with the tradition (special candles, stars, hats, songs, whatever!). RSVP 315-446-1694.

Upcoming Book Club Readings

  • Jan. 28: Fruit of the Drunken Tree, by Ingrid Rojas Contreras. The perils of day-to-day existence in late-20th-century Colombia—a time of drug lords, guerrillas, kidnappings, and car bombs—are glimpsed through the eyes of a child and her family’s teenage maid, and their relationship exposes facets of the class divide. Told with suspense and mystical lyricism in the vein of Gabriel García Márquez and Isabel Allende.
  • Feb. 25: The Milk Lady of Bangalore by Shoba Narawan

Teaching New Americans to Sew

The second session of sewing class for the year is underway, with students from Bhutan, Burma, and Syria. We have enough fabric, notions, and machines to give away at the end of the session. We still need portable sewing machines to give students who complete the spring 2019 sessions. More information.
