The mailing says because of summer schedules the Seattle-Daliwe Sister Community Project has not scheduled a meeting for July; we will resume out regular monthly meetings in August and meet the third Thursday of each month. The mailing says at our June meeting we elected officers for the organization; Sharon Henderson was selected as President and Maseko Nxumalo was elected to serve in the dual capacity of Vice President and Treasurer; Nancy Palmer and Lynne Wilson are serving as our initial Board of Directors. The mailing says the Seattle-Daliwe Sister Community Project was officially incorporated in the State of Washington on May 6. 1993; in June we were issued out Employee Identification Number by the IRA; this was all in preparation for applying to the IRS for 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. The mailing says early in June we were fortunate to have Davin Bremner meet with us and share some of his experiences; Although Davin does not live and work in Daliwe, he keeps in touch with our friends there and visited Daliwe shortly before he left for a brief vacation in the U.S. The mailing says the Seattle-Daliwe Sister Community Project's contributions towards the teacher training course n Queenstown were much appreciated by our friends in Daliwe. The mailing says the Project has been assembling some AIDS prevention information for use in the clinic in Cathcart; we are also hoping to be able to send some textbooks for the new school in Daliwe if the residents want us to go ahead with that effort. The mailing says all are invited to attend a demonstration/rally on commemoration of South African Women’s Day on Monday, August 9; it is being coordinated by the Southern Africa Action Network.
