Did you attend “An Introduction to Haiti Today,” the popular screening and Haitian dinner event that WWAC and HOST held at the Centre Congregational Church last April? Due to the very positive reception you gave to this event, we have booked a return engagement. This time we will partner with HOST to offer a celebration of Haitian Independence. We are celebrating with a screening of a documentary entitled “Liberty in a Soup.” In this film we’ll learn about the revolution that won independence for Haiti in 1804,  and then we’ll enjoy a meal of “Soup Joumou,” the soup that Haitians prepare every year when they celebrate their independence on New Year’s Day. It’s traditionally a mix of squash, potatoes and meat, but we will also offer a vegetarian version as well as bread, cheese and beverages. Suggested contribution for the dinner is $10 per person. All proceeds will be utilized to support HOST’s mission to meet basic needs for food, education, medical care, and other essentials for the children living at Foyer Evangelique Orphanage in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti.
