 Sri Lanka Dinner:  Sri Lanka has been experiencing turmoil and food shortages that have affected most of the people living in that country. Our church has partnered with a Tangalle tour guide named Dudley DeSilva to bring some of the delicious flavours of the country to a takeout fundraiser to help some individuals living in the southern region. Dudley operates a cooking school out of his modest home and he has provided  us with many of his own traditional recipes as well as videos on how to prepare some of the dishes he uses in his school. On Thursday, October 6 we will be providing takeout dinners using Dudley’s recipes for curried chicken, potatoes, carrots and onions. There will also be a generous portion of rice and some ginger cookies with a mango lassie (small yogurt milkshake) for dessert. Dinners will sell for $15 and a digital cookbook with many recipes as well as Dudley’s videos will be available for an extra $10.

 Please contact Sylvia Foxton for tickets and JoAnne Fletcher or Barb DeJeet if you would help with the dinner preparations on October 5.
