Sandwich Sunday and Celebration

Posted by admin on Feb 23, 2013 in Meeting News

The fourth Sunday of every month is our “Sandwich Sunday”, a time for sharing favorite dishes, desserts, and conversation. This particular Sandwich Sunday will include a celebration of our newest member, Gita L., who has transferred her membership from Columbia SC Meeting to Asheville. Join us in welcoming Gita, now a familiar face to most and a strong presence in our community, by bringing a dish that reflects your ethnic background, or a cuisine you especially like. Everyone is welcome: whether you bring food or not, there is always plenty to share!

Camp G.L.O.W.

Congratulations to Camp GLOW!

Asheville Friends help fund education and empowerment for girls in Swaziland

Our Meeting’s contribution to Swazi Camp GLOW Project made a big difference, even to the point of enabling the existence of Swazi Camp GLOW and supporting the timely training of camp volunteers and staff! The remaining balance of needed funds was donated.

And the full project funding (total around $18,000 inclusive of local Swazi community contributions) of $11,593.36 in cash donations and Swaziland Peace Corps matching grant funds is now reportedly on its way to the Swazi Camp Glow Project Organizing Committee. Stephanie and the other 16 Peace Corps Volunteers who are the Organizing Committee will evidently be able to keep rolling out Swazi Camp GLOW as soon as the current holiday is over.

For more information about Camp GLOW, please visit this excellent blog on a recent Camp GLOW in Rwanda:
