This Thanksgiving, What Are You Thankful For? We’re Thankful for Farmworkers!

From ApopkaQuiltProject.BlogSpot.com, 17 Nov 2011.

On November 16, the Farmworker Association of Florida brought back a much-missed event… Giving Thanks to Farmworkers Celebration and Dinner!  Held at St. Margaret Mary Church in Winter Park, over 100 people came to celebrate the dedication Florida Farmworkers show on a daily basis.  But best of all, the Lake Apopka Farmworker Memorial Quilts made an appearance!

Bringing color and excitement into the room, the Quilts were able to draw attendees into the issues, and help them remember what it truly means to be a farmworker.  The Lake Apopka Farmworker Memorial Quilts allowed everyone to take the time and pay a much deserved tribute to all Farmworkers.

The Farmworker Association of Florida would like to warmly thank Whole Foods, Wild Ocean Seafood Market, the Fresh Market, and Ethos Vegan Kitchen for their generous donations to our event.
