Hi Friends of UFPPC,

Saturday, and potluck to discuss Afghanistan is just about here. Here are the last minute updates. We’ll be getting together in the Fellowship Room of First United Methodist Church, which is located in the basement. Access is easiest by using the back door located to the on the alley to the East of the building. And there is lots of parking there! Below is a resend to the invitation we sent out earlier this week.

See you Saturday, April 18th.


United for Peace of Pierce County and the MICAH Project of First United Methodist Church invite you to a potluck dinner and round table discussion of Afghanistan and our recent Afghanistan Film Series. Come join us on Saturday, April 18, 2009, at 6:00 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 621 Tacoma Ave. South, Tacoma, WA.

Please bring your favorite potluck dish and, if you can, your own eating utensils (glass, flatware, plate, etc). We will have some paper plates and plastic ware, but we're also trying to be ecologically sound. We, also, understand that in these times, there are friends among us who may not be able to afford an extra dish. If you find yourself in this position, please, please come and allow us to share food with you.

If you have the time, it would be nice if you copied the recipe for those who'd like it and those who may be allergic to the ingredient.

After dinner, we'll circle up the chairs and discuss our understandings, hopes, fears, and desires for the United States in Afghanistan, the Afghan government and it's people. The event will finish up around 9:00 p.m.
