We came together as a community to picnic like our ancestors & we heard their whispers to honor & protect the land. We had a great time -- seeing one another face to face (finally!), sharing a delicious late lunch (mujaddara, watermelon, and malateet), enjoying the wonderful music of maestro Muaz Idris, and dancing the debka (with some belly dancing thrown in for good measure). We thank our guests for making it a success, our awesome volunteers for doing a lot of heavy lifting, Muaz Idris for making it festive, and Tina Falkenbury for documenting the occasion with her wonderful photos.
