On Sunday, Feb. 20th, we took a trip over to check out the Syrian Sweets Exchange at Dayspring united Methodist Church.  The event was organized by Debbie Crenshaw, founder of the Facebook group Syrian Refugee Connection, and Nancy Speidel, Co-leader of the Syrian Sweets Project.  Here they are to tell you a little bit more:

These ladies are planning several other events, including:

  • March 11 – 11am-5pm Kite Festival, Fountain Park,  12925 N. Saguaro Blvd, Fountain Hills, AZ 85268
  • March 26 – 10am – 1pm St. Bernard Catholic Church 10755 N. 124th St, Scottsdale, AZ 85259

The turnout was better than expected and here are some of the photos from our brief visit!
