Banquet will support Syrian family

Dear Editor,

A tasty feast is coming up on Feb. 14 at 5:30 p.m.  It’s in support of the Albetars, the Syrian refugee family who are making Summerland their home.

They are trying hard to learn English, and  Summerlanders have helped getting them settled.

Now we’re asking as many of you who can to come to the Valentine dinner at the United Church as a fund-raiser for this family.

You’ll have delectable food and be doing a good deed as well.

The Valentine’s Day theme is “love and learn about your neighbour.”

The dinner will feature Middle Eastern cooking prepared by Ayman Kanaan, a professional caterer trained in making delicious specialties of the Syrian region.

Tickets can be obtained at The Beanery or the church office. No tickets will be sold at the door.

Extra food would be too complex to prepare in the last moment.

We hope that you’ll support this effort. Summerlanders are a generous lot.
