Taken from http://skaneatelesrealtor.blogspot.com/ Meg writes a Community Blog about the Real Eastate end of things, including some interesting personal and community observations. Of herself, Meg says:

Growing up in Syracuse I loved the summers at our lake, but hated the winters. I got away to college (Mount Holyoke), a career in teaching and went west for a while. I returned to the Finger Lakes and fell in love with them all over again. Now, I sell homes to people I enjoy, and appreciate each and every day. Blogging will let me share this experience.

Community comes together to learn about, and help, Sudanese

Community comes together to learn about, and help, Sudanese

The event, called Soup for Sudan, will begin at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 19, in the Skaneateles High School cafeteria. Donations for the soup will benefit medical clinics in the African country. Area churches will make the soup.

At 6 p.m., the Rev. Craig Lindsey and Dr. Barb Connor will share their recent experiences working at the Duk Lost Boys Clinic. Students from the high school’s Interact Club will present checks for the Duk Clinic and for the Saint Bakhita Clinic. The money was raised through schoolwide donations after an assembly featuring the Lost Boys. Popular T-shirts focused on bringing help to Sudan have continued to raise funds.

Helen Glowacki, who is coordinating the event with Romy Callahan, said she is hopeful that some Lost Boys and Girls will attend the session and speak. In addition, note cards with photos taken by both Craig Lindsey and Don Cross will be for sale.

High School Principal Georgette Hoskins said it is a chance for Skaneateles High School students who were so moved by the assembly at school to learn more and to share the experience with their parents.

The annual All-School Entertainment is also scheduled that evening, beginning at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Staff advisor Sandra Taylor said $1 of every ticket will go toward the Soup for Sudan effort.

Nancy Graham, who has been active in the cause through the Episcopalian Church, said two clay cows will be on display and available through a silent auction. The cows were created by and signed by Angelo Kiir, one of the Lost Boys who spoke at the high school assembly.

“Several Lost Boys have been creating cows common to their culture and country,” Graham said. The cows represent work the young men did when they were young and living in Sudan.

Ruhlman is information officer for Skaneateles schools.
