Hi Everyone!

Given our current social distancing regulations we are holding another virtual movie night given the success of the last one.

Instead of how we used to meet in person this time we will do a "virtual dinner" and everyone should try to make or buy a dish that goes with the film. The film is about a girl growing up under Taliban rule in Afghanistan so I suggest either a dish from that country or a dish of choice (since that may be hard to find or make).

Beginning at 19:00 people can showcase their recipes/dishes which we'll have until about 19:40 to discuss before Zoom kicks us out. Then after we'll watch the film via Netflix, I just checked and as of today the film appears to be there. Please make sure to login in to your accounts or wherever else you plan to get it, so that we can watch at the same time.

Once the film ends, I'll send another zoom invitation and then we can engage in our discussion of the film. It will be optional at this time whether you guys want to also have a dessert together.

Looking forward to "seeing" all soon in a midst of difficult times our community and world are facing, but together we'll get through this together in a new setting.
