The DKG Bemidji Chapter of International Women Educators held its holiday celebration on Dec. 1. Club members learned about East Africa and traditions there for celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. BSU musician Luan performed on the drums, and there were African silk screenings by Mary Therese from Bemidji, as well as African Mud Cloth from Mali, which is woven and decorated using the river water, as well as tables covered by African prints, flowers and a handcrafted tree decoration with African design. The Calvary Lutheran Youth Group served the club members.

Member Gerry Nynas' son, Paul Nynas, a pastor in North Dakota, works with Well Springs for Africa, a nonprofit organization and presented to the group, as did BSU professor and photographer Monika Lawrence.
