Hello!

You are invited to a FREE dinner hosted by UNC International Friends, 6-8pm this Friday (2/17/2017) at University Presbyterian Church.  Enter through the student center doors at 110 Henderson Street (1/2 block off Franklin Street). This dinner will be different than our typical Friday’s. This dinner will be our International Potluck, a chance to share your favorite dishes from your home country with the International Friends Community! It is optional, but not necessary to bring a dish to share. But it is a great chance to share you culture’s cuisine with us. If you are able to bring a dish, could you please reply back to me which dish and how many people it is for?

Please arrive before 6pm to be entered in a drawing for a prize! Dinner will be served at 6pm.  After dinner we will be celebrating Valentines Day. We will play a fun get-to-know-you game and have an interactive discussion about Valentines Day and unconditional love.  We will end by 8pm so you can catch the bus home – or get a ride with someone there.

Have a good week!

International Friends

Friday Dinner Canceled for 2/3/17

I’m sorry, but we JUST got an email from Chapel of the Cross were the dinner is schedule to be this evening that they are going to have to cancel because of the water issue and close the church. It is the lack of water for bathrooms and also lack of a fire sprinkler system if anything were to happen. We have no choice but to cancel. So sorry, we were looking forward to a fun evening together.
