A meeting to discuss sponsoring a Syrian refugee family in the Kensington area will be held Jan. 18.
This is an exploratory meeting to gauge the level of interest for the idea and to create a committee to move the plan ahead.
The meeting is being organized by Sally Blake Hooff of Kensington and Patricia Bennett of New London.
Anyone with an interest in making a difference for a Syrian family is encouraged to attend.
The meeting will be held at the Lion’s Club in Kensington beginning at 7:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. In the case of bad weather, the meeting will take place at the same time and location one week later on Jan. 25.
