DEFENDING HUMAN RIGHTS IN HAITI

Local White Dove Awards
Bob Kaiser, ROCLA’s Convener, and Marilyn Kaiser, Membership Chair, will be honored with ROCLA’s Local White Dove Award for their long-term leadership, for tireless completion of day-to-day administrative chores, keeping ROCLA morale high and the organization on course.
Make your reservations now for an evening of camaraderie, fun, feasting, and celebration! To a background of Haitian music you can bid for the remarkable Silent Auction items, savor rice and beans, salsa and salad from the incomparable Peg Gefell, enjoy a buffet of desserts, and celebrate the 2012 White Dove Award recipients. Most importantly, Brian Concannon will talk about the state of human rights in Haiti.
FOOD, FUN, LIVE & SILENT AUCTIONS Dinner catered by Savory Thyme
The Live and Silent Auctions are a highlight of the evening. Lory Ghertner, pilot, has offered again this year his fabulous private plane ride over the Finger Lakes. And Bob Good’s rustic cabin in a quiet beautiful setting on top of a hill near Honeoye Lake will be available in the summer.
