Help welcome refugees from Iraq to Schenectady

On Friday, March 6, help celebrate the arrival of Mustafa, Salam, and Walid at the First Unitarian Society of Schenectady with a pot luck party. Please bring a dish, dessert, or beverage to share. We will start at 6:30 pm in the dining hall. The kitchen will be available for heating food. (We need a few experienced FUSS volunteers to help with clean up afterwards.)

We will all get a chance to introduce ourselves to Mustafa, Salam, and Walid and introduce ourselves to each other. Members of the Shia Mosque are attending, as well as FUSS volunteers, and Iraqi community members. Please come if you can.. All are welcome. If you have any questions, please contact Bob Alft at 765-4386.

A large community of FUSS members have been very involved in preparations for the arrival of three men who are refugees from Iraq. It has been an interfaith partnership at work in Schenectady.
