A special thank you to everyone who made it out in the cold tonight for our first International Fair meeting!  A quick summary of what we did....ATE CHEESE AND PEPPERONI PIZZA :)

Discussed projects we would like to complete

We created  groups to summarize the 4 states of Micronesia:
  1. Kosrae:   Emma and Myles

Please make sure you make a post on the blog by this Sunday January 23rd on your state and something you personally wanted to learn about.

Please make a comment to at least one other persons posting no later than Wednesday January 26th.

For our next meeting on Friday January 28th each participant will make their own Rai....or stone money.  After some great suggestions, we have decided to make our stone money out of concrete to make it look more like the real thing.  Please come prepared to the next meeting hungry and ready to make Rai!

Happy Blogging!
