Question about one of your events coming up...

I saw this on your homepage... Islam Awareness Week — Muslim Women in Canton Living As Muslim Women In Canton will feature the daily lives of several professional women, including business owners, doctors, engineers, students, scholars, mothers and more. Join us on March 24 at 7:00PM in the Community Room to hear the accomplishments and challenges of being Muslim in Canton. This program is presented by members of the Muslim Community of Western Suburbs in celebration of Islam Awareness Week. Do you plan to have a CHRISTIAN women in Canton event, and the same as you mention above with the Muslim women? Just wondering. Gayle Bortz

Thanks for your question! This event is presented as part of our ongoing cultural and diversity awareness series — you may have seen notices about our St. Valentine's event in February, St. Patrick's Day event in March, Chinese New Year event, or the local author of a book on creationism and intelligent design we hosted last spring. Our goal is to "connect the community" by bringing the different cultures, ethnicities, and religions that are represented in Canton together to foster understanding. I hope that you we will see you at this week's program, and if you are interested in participating on a panel or as a speaker for a future event, please let me know and I can connect you with our Program Specialist. We would be glad to include you.
