On Feb. 8, the Rwanda Connection Committee will host a free luncheon where people can learn more about the progress of this expeditionary learning school in eastern Rwanda.

Joy Petty recently visited Rwamagana with her 16-year-old daughter, Ellie. They will discuss the school’s achievements and needs at 12:15 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 8, at Peace Lutheran Church, 828 W. Main St., Grass Valley. A free luncheon is offered; please call (530) 273-9631 to RSVP.

Petty, of Santa Rosa, Calif., is the treasurer and past president of the Rwanda School Project, a nonprofit group that gathers support for the school. Petty also will speak at the 10 a.m. adult Bible study and briefly during the 11 a.m. worship service Feb. 8 at Peace.

Hint to luncheon attendees: Look for the Rwanda Quiz on the tables. Prizes including Fair Trade tea and chocolate bars will be given for the most correct answers.
