WELCOMING SYRIAN FAMILIES TO OUR AREA – PUBLIC MEETING:

SUNDAY, JANUARY 17, 1:00 PM at the HAMPTON HIGH SCHOOL COMMUNITY THEATRE

Are you interested in learning more about welcoming Syrian families to our community?  All are invited to an information meeting at the HHS Community Theatre on Sunday, Jan 17, @ 1pm (snow date January 24).

There will be an up-date by the local groups that have applied to sponsor families about where they are in the process of bringing refugee families to the area.

Also, several speakers who have personal experience with refugee re-settlement will share their insights about how best to welcome refugee families and to successfully transition these families into Canadian communities.

We must continue to support local people in need, so the Hampton Food Basket will set up a collection area in the HHS lobby. They will be pleased to accept non-perishable foods and monetary donations.

Come to the meeting and show that “it’s our nature” to be a welcoming community!
