NEXT SEPTA MEETING
Please join us Wednesday, March 12th for a special SEPTA meeting on School Safety. Fairfield Chief of Police, Gary MacNamara, will be our guest speaker on the topic. Q&A will follow. Meeting starts at 7:30, McKinley library.
SEPTA BOOK CLUB
The meeting to discuss one of the most acclaimed novels of our time, "I Know This Much Is True," by Wally Lamb, will be on Wednesday, March 19. It is a story of alienation and connection, devastation and renewal, at once joyous, heartbreaking, poignant, mystical, and powerfully, profoundly human. A main character suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. Please RSVP to email@example.com.
Our April book will be "The Impossible Knife of Memory," by Laurie Halce Andersen.
OPERATION HOPE DINNER
SEPTA is looking for volunteers to help prepare a meal for Monday, April 7, 2014.
Food will be prepared at home and will need to be dropped off at a to-be-determined location by 3 pm on 4/7/14. Each dinner is expected to feed about 50 people and leftovers from dinner are used for lunch the next day.
A menu will be planned so that SEPTA provides a main entree, vegetable, potato/rice, fresh fruit, dessert, bread/rolls, and drinks. You do not need to cook for 50, as we can split the different portions among 2-4 volunteer cooks. If you don't have time to cook, you can choose to provide drinks, bread, dessert, or even help with delivery.
Please email Patty Mihaylo at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
This is an excellent opportunity to involve our kids in the preparation and drop-off, and is a wonderful way to give back to our community.
