Friday Dinner, Feb 21st

You are invited to a FREE dinner hosted by UNC International Friends this week, Friday 2/21/20,  6-8pm at University Presbyterian Church. It looks like the snow should all be over and melting away. Enter through the student center doors at 110 Henderson Street (1/2 block off Franklin Street) and go downstairs. Click here for a map. There is no parking allowed at the church but there is a parking deck just across the street and often street parking further down Henderson St.

Come join us Friday evening at International Friends where we’ll enjoy a hot, homecooked meal of the staff’s crockpot favorites together. And then afterward we’ll be watching a couple of entertaining “short films” and discussing their meaning in small groups around our tables. Should be fun!

Dinner will be served at 6pm and we will end by 8pm so you can catch the bus home – or get a ride with someone there.

Should be a great evening! We look forward to seeing you Friday before 6pm!

Our remaining Friday dinners this semester are Feb 21st, Mar 20th, April 3rd and April 17th.

Also, on March 7th (the first Sat of spring break) International Friends is going to Hanging Rock! We’ll give you all the details coming up, but plan to come enjoy a great day of hiking and friends in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.
