'Heart of Africa' set for Saturday
The public is invited to attend "A Heart for Africa," a community event, lunch and fundraiser 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday March 19, at Evangelical Covenant Church on U.S. Highway 2 West in Bemidji.
The event will feature a slide show featuring photography taken in Kenya by professional photographer Trish Barthorpe, and a narration of the trip and two projects started by Bemidji resident Jenn Anderson, who was recently featured in the March/April edition of Northwoods Woman Magazine.
Of the two projects, one focuses on using art to empower women; the other focuses on connecting American sponsors with orphans in Kenya.
The event is free. However, participants are encouraged to give a donation to cover the cost of the authentic Kenyan lunch that will be served.
Seating is limited and must be reserved by noon Friday, March 18, by calling 209-6986 or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
