Monthly Potluck & Presentation: “Growing up poor, and uneducated amid violence in El Salvador” by Tony Gasbarro

Friday, 30 January 2015 at Mary Siah Rec Center Conference Room

Potluck at 6:00, Presentation starts at 7:00

Tony is the coordinator of the Project Salvador Scholarship Program, which he initiated in 1998 after finishing up his service with the Peace Corps in a remote Salvadoran village. In addition to giving us an understanding of current circumstances in El Salvador, he will have insights on the broader phenomenon of the thousands of unaccompanied children from Latin America that have been showing up on our borders.

The Mary Siah Rec Center is at 805 14th Avenue, just east of Lathrop High School.  The conference room is on the 1st floor, to the left as you come in the front door, just beyond the small office.  The building closes shortly after 9:00 so we need to keep in mind that we need to finish up by 9:00.

    Very happy to have had the opportunity to enjoy- look forward to many more- thanks to all who helped. Becoming part of APC is one of the best choices I have ever made- now let’s hope I may continue to enhance my ear to listen………
