Karen Club Welcoming Party
ecently, the Karen club held a party to welcome new students at Solomon Hall on Saturday evening, June 26, 2010. Students, teachers, staff and their family members came and enjoyed the time together. The program started with a short devotion, followed by fun games. Students really enjoyed the program. We could see their happy faces; their enjoyment and laughter made the atmosphere joyful. After the games, it was time to eat. We really enjoyed many kinds of homemade food, which was prepared by the teachers and staff. It was a great time to get to know each other when we were enjoying the food. This fellowship fostered good relationship among our club members. For the past few years, our club has carried out many projects to serve the society. In this academic year, we have changed our name to â€œpreservation of cultures and environmentâ€?. The reason behind this change is because we would like to encourage more students, not only Karen students, to join us. The club is also planning to make a proposal to the Foundation in Thailand for the funding of our projects. We would like to invite students from all nations to join our club. We will stand together to serve our Father in heaven and the society.
