Ogeysiis!  Importante para Usted, por favor léalo  Please read!

Announcements brought to you by Cultural Bridges of St. Joseph, a committee of Central Minnesota Community Empowerment Organization. We are dedicated to ease your transition into our community.

Mary Quinlivan is on the Cultural Bridges Steering Committee and her group is working with a number of Somali families that are having their first attempt at gardening at the Monastery of St. Benedict community gardens. They are planning to have a planting meeting from 2-4 p.m. Sunday June 2, at the community gardens down the road on Sunset Drive and past the Spirituality Center where the morning ESL classes are held. 

If you are a gardener and if you are available on June 2, it would be great if you would join them. They could use about eight people who would be willing to teach how to make rows, use the tools and how to plant the seeds and plants. If you have an interest and are not available on June 2, please let us know when you are available.

The group could also use one or two Somali interpreters to help with communication. Contact Mary Quinlivan, 612-616-5343  mmquinlivan@msn.com.

If you have any questions, please contact Dianne DeVargas or Khadija Salah at 320-345-0593. Please share this message with other refugees and immigrants you know who live in St. Joseph.
