PIEN Fundraising Dinner
A month or so ago I attended a great online Palestinian cooking class, organised by PIEN, the Palestine Israel Ecumenical Network. Now, I am keen to practise my new skills, so early in the New Year, I will be organising a small Palestinian dinner at our place. It won’t be a big group, but the idea is to share some Palestinian food (hopefully nicely cooked) and have an informal conversation about Palestine. It will also be a fundraiser for PIEN, but don’t feel pressured by that.
Please let me know if you would like to be involved. It will probably be on a Friday evening, sometime in late January or February. Anyone is welcome, but numbers are limited, so please let me know as soon as possible.
Thanks!  Tim Budge, 0412 051 574
