Needham's Guatemalan connection

Posted by smaas March 23, 2007 01:10 PM


This weekend, the Congregational Church of Needham celebrates the 20th anniversary of its partnership with Santa Maria Tzeja, a village in Guatemala.

Dinner and dancing Saturday night will provide a break in a weekend of workshops looking at how both communities have benefited from the relationship and the larger issues of immigration and the global economy.

Speakers include delegates from Guatemala and Needham residents who have volunteered there.

Families are welcome to attend Saturday night's festivities, which will also feature games and a silent auction.

The cost is $10; $25 for a family. For details, call Clark Taylor 781-400-5076.
