Volunteer Opportunities and
Poverty Awareness Fair
October 15-17, 2009

The name of the fair is derived from the Zulu phrase meaning, “What have we done?” and is hosted by the Social Action Committee of the First Religious Society Unitarian Universalist, Belleville Congregational Church, Pennies for Poverty: 2 Cents 4 Change, Inc., and the Poverty Program.

“It’s going to be a great fair,” says Catherine Yesair Gould of Pennies for Poverty. “We’ve got the Jelly Bean Mystery Auction, the Community Choir coming from Boston and 28 tables by local (non-profit) organizations – it’s going to be a great time.”

Ghlee Woodworth will be signing her new book Tiptoe through the Tombstones (I highly recommend it, by the way) along with Fran Larkin, author of 5 Words and Then Some: How to Succeed in This Big Game We Call Life (sorry, haven't read this), from 12-4 on Friday and on Saturday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Unitarian Church on Pleasant Street.

Newburyport native Kathy Heywood will also be giving a presentation on the power of music to create social change and Ward 4 City Councillor Ed Cameron will discuss homelessness.
