Social Concerns Box
The Social Concerns Box for May for Ramallah Friends School Scholarships. We raise most of the money for two scholarships at Spring Fling on Sunday, May 19, but cash/check contributions to the social concerns box add to the total. Please come enjoy the fun, plan to spend a lot, and enjoy a tasty Middle Eastern lunch, great White Camel sale bargains, a Silent Auction of intriguing items and services, and some new wrinkles.
