This year our annual Global Village board meeting comes during National Volunteer Week. April 10 we will welcome in new board members and say goodbye to retiring board members Elizabeth Imtairah, who has done our purchasing for several years, Clare Tschirn, who has worked to organize our yearly store inventory, and Elijah Samson, our newsletter editor for the last two years. We give thanks for their time and their talents.
You are invited to join us on Thursday evening at Forrest Hill United Methodist Church for soup and dessert. Dr. Martha Willi, Medical Director of Haiti Mission Connection, will speak about Haitian culture. Haiti Mission Connection, Inc., based in Peoria, seeks to help the people of the Haitian village of Bodarie by helping to provide medical care at a year-round clinic staffed by a Haitian nurse, household water purification systems, and assistance for the school operated by the parish of St. Benoit.
Forrest Hill United Methodist Church is located at 706 E Forrest Hill Ave in Peoria. We have a very brief board meeting at 6:30 pm to formally elect our slate of board members, then food and our program. Please help us celebrate our invaluable Global Village volunteers.
