Re: Sabin's Global Experience event - Thursday, May 7, 2009 6pm

In the past families sharing the unique foods that reflect their rich culture and heritage has been the center of interest for the Global Experience event. However, given the current developments regarding the swine flu and all the concern regarding its spreading, it is necessary to cancel the family preparation of food during the event. Hopefully our school's tradition of families sharing their country of origin through food can resume next year.

If you have any other ways you would like to share a culture at the event, please contact Claudia Tautfest or Yvonne Berry.

If you have any additional questions please feel free email me or call.

Thank you,

Richard Schafer
Sabin School principal
