            Following the December 10th Santa Claus parade in Bobcaygeon, the public is invited to warm their hearts and stomachs at Trinity United Church on William Street.

            The Soup and Scones for Chiapas and the Planet fundraiser is a pay-by-donation supper event to support

two local educators to attend a global gathering in Mexico.

            Professor James Wilkes of Trent University and Fleming College, and Traditional Knowledge Keeper and Practitioner, Joseph Pitawanakwat hope to travel to Chiapas along with many scientists from around the world to engage with youth leaders at the ‘The Zapatistas and the ConSciences for Humanity’ conference (December 25, 2016 to January 4, 2017) in San Cristobel de Las Casas.

            Marcelino Lopez, Sherry Telford and their daughters are working hard on this event to raise funds to send the two delegates to the gathering. Soup and Scones for Chiapas attendees can take-out or sit-down in Trinity Hall to enjoy this hearty and worthwhile meal which begins at 5:30 pm. After supper, at 6:30 pm, James Wilkes, Sherry and Marcelino will give a multi-media presentation on the work the Zapatistas are doing in Mexico.
