Monthly Service Update: Immigrant Luncheon/National Children's Day

Received today from Kim at the Pleasantville Presbyterian Church via Facebook:

I am sharing with the incredible team from Indivisible Pleasantville....

Thank you, thank you for the perfect party you pulled off this afternoon. The kids were ebullient as they made their sketch pads and totes, picked out designs for face painting, played games, whacked piƱatas and dove for treats. And if providing children with an afternoon of fun on Mexican National Children's Day was all you did, the day would have been a complete success.

But you did so much more. The delicious lunch and desserts! The camaraderie among adults! The well-received session with the immigration attorney, and later, the discussion with Pastor Debbie about how to talk about immigration with kids. Providing rides to and from our church. Setting up and cleaning up. And inviting attendees into the community that is Pleasantville. You are an inspiration.

Until next time, my friends.
