Bates Dance Festival

Dear CAFAM members,

On Friday and Saturday, August 1 & 2, there will be performances by well-known Chinese dancer Yin Mei and on the same program with South Africa’s Vincent Sekwati Mantsoe.

Prior to these performances there will be a free talk and demonstration by the artists: That’s Tuesday July 29 in the evening.

Here’s the web page that tells all about it:


Potluck in the Park

Dear CAFAM members,

Don’t forget the picnic on Saturday, June 14th, 11 am, at Winslow Park in Freeport! Please bring a dish to share. Hope to see you there!

Potluck in the Park

CAFAM’S summer potluck is scheduled for June 14th from 11 am to 3 pm at Winslow Park in Freeport, which proved to be such a pleasant spot for the event last year.

Winslow Park features a beach, walking trails and playground. We hope to see many folks come out for food, fun, kite-flying, beachcombing and more. Also, the annual election of CAFAM board members will take place at the event. Prospective new board members should contact CAFAM board member and event organizer Amanda Szala at aashilan.

Directions: Coming either from north or south, get onto Rte 1. In south Freeport you’ll see the big Indian statue by the side of the road. Near there is a blinking light where you’ll turn onto South Freeport Road. Go about a mile and take a right onto Staples Point Road (there is a wooden sign for Winslow Park there). Stay on Staples Point Road all the way to the end.
