Next Monday there is a Local Refugee Sponsorship Public Information Session at 7pm at St Stephen's Hall. Moved
by the crises in countries such as Syria, The Starfish Refugee Project
has begun investigating local sponsorship of two refugee
families. Comprised of residents and groups in the Chester area from
East River to Western Shore, the plan is to raise at least $40,000 to
begin the sponsorship process. $11,000 has already been raised. The
public gathering on Monday aims to inform and inspire. It is not enough
to simply raise money. It takes a passionate, committed community to
help make this a successful sponsorship. The organizers hope for a large
turnout, where the story behind the "Starfish" name will be revealed.

raining, do cows go up to the farmhouse, 'Let us in! We're all wearing
leather! Open the door! We're going to ruin the whole outfit here!'"
