Thanksgiving

It’s November! Time to reflect and consider our good fortune in life and all the things we are grateful for. AWC will offer its annual Thanksgiving dinner on Friday, November 24th. See details under “Activities”

Jane Austen Tea Party Follow Up

October 28th, we hosted a fundraiser on the theme of Teatime with Jane Austen. Lecturer Marlene Edelstein gave an inspiring talk on themes found in Austen’s works and their relevance today. This was followed by a light-hearted quiz on Austen, a raffle with great prizes and “afternoon tea”: sandwiches, cakes, assorted tea and certainly coffee, for those diehards.

The fundraiser generated a little over 2000 DKK which will be submitted to FAWCO under its matching funds program the Target Project: Hope Beyond Displacement.
