Nancy Has Thanksgiving Dinner with Community United – 2. December, 2011
Community United hosted its 4th annual Thanksgiving dinner at both the Starbird and Alma Youth Centers in San Jose. Nancy made a special trip to San Jose and told the youth how proud she was of them for making good choices and staying in school. She showed them a special episode of Simpson’s!!! She answered questions and even performed a dozen “voices” having the kids guess the characters from many different shows! Representatives joined the celebrations from both the Vice Mayor’s office and Councilman Pete Constant’s office!
Nancy signed bookmarks and photos, and took lots of pictures with the kids and their parents and grandparents! Everyone had a great time and a wonderful turkey dinner thanks to a donation from Trader Joe’s, the community and special contribution from Nancy! Several kids (and adults) said it was the best Thanksgiving ever!! And when asked what she thought of the event, Nancy said, “There are lots of things I am thankful for but to see those smiling young faces gobbling down some gobble-gobble was a topper this year.”

Confronting a hostile environment full of heavily-armed soldiers, they managed to pull together a group of volunteers who helped them penetrate the front lines of the conflict and get the book into the hands of thousands of soldiers on both sides. The team succeeded in gaining the support of key officials from both armies, including General Laurent Nkunda, commander of the rebel CNDP Army. This unprecedented and rare meeting was documented to include his inspired agreement to the precepts in the book. (more…)
