Three dedicated volunteers enjoy the evening
Members and friends of CoFiA gathered at the Presbyterian Church in Leonia to enjoy dinner, conversation, and an excellent program–as well as a brief business meeting. Co-chairs Suzanne Broffman and Carolyn Sobering, along with Pete Shanno and others, shared their experiences during a trip to Guatemala last summer. In addition to helping local people build “bottle schools” the group had a chance to meet the family of our secretary, Guillermo Calan; and to visit with Amado Espada, a long-time CoFiA friend and member who returned to Guatemala to teach English and raise his children.
CoFiA is looking forward to meeting more challenges in 2014. People who wish to become members are invited to complete the application form from the home page of this web site, and return it with their membership fee and a donation if possible. As you know, we depend on donations from members and friends and a few small donations from organizations to carry on our work.
