On Friday evening, February 8, we will focus on the “Rights of Children” at our community potluck at St. Barnabas. Our speaker is Peter Holman, a local attorney with the law firm of Ropes & Gray, who advocates for families that have been separated at the Mexican border with the United States. Peter’s work in Texas was the subject of a Valley News article this past summer. This is presented in collaboration with the Arts ala Carte program—a series begun by Lani Carney and designed for parents and art families of Children’s Art Studio in Norwich. We’ll gather for this “Sharing our Stories” potluck at 5:30 in the Parish Hall behind the church; after the talk we will share a meal. The community is welcome.
