Join us on October 9th (6:00PM-8:00PM), to hear stories of immigrants in both Kansas and Missouri, as told by them. You will not only get the opportunity to learn about this project, but you will also learn how to contribute to your own story. Appetizers will be provided and registration is through RooGroups.
