Best wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving vacation with your families. Our Thankful Turkey was put up by a group of friendly seniors. I was able to include a few more service pictures below...our group at the Lemur Center and shots of our students helping Early School children with art projects.

A presentation and sharing by our very own Dave Worden along with Carole and Ivy Blackmore
From the Ground Up:
The Development of a Weaving Cooperative in Nicaragua
Sponsored by the CFS P.A.C.E. Grant Program
El Ocotal is a small rural village near Matagalpa, Nicaragua. While stationed there from 2007 to 2010, Ivy Blackmore helped 17 village women start a small cottage business of weaving small rag rugs and placemats. As the project developed, Carol Blackmore procured several looms and traveled to El Ocotal to train the women. What was then needed was a building to house the looms and the business. Thanks to a CFS sponsored P.A.C.E. Grant, Dave Worden was able to spend six weeks in the village in the summer of 2011 to design, supervise and help construct a much needed facility. We hope you will come to hear about Dave's amazing summer experience!
