Printed in www.peicanada.com in 2005. Many people in the Souris area have been taking part in a Vanishing Coffee Party as a fundraiser for the Mikinduri Children of Hope Foundation, which exists to relieve poverty in Kenya. The coffee party started when Rita and Ted Grant, of Cornwall invited Sara Deveau, of Souris, and six other guests to be a party of seven at their home. Sara and the others involved were then required to invite six people for coffee and each of those six were required to host five people and so on within two weeks. Each invited guest must give a donation of at least $6 and if all the coffee parties occur the group will raise $84,000. With Ms Deveau, far right, being one of the original seven, one of her invited guests was Father Flloyd Gallant, of Souris, who invited Mary mcCormac, who had Kay Grant at her Party, who invited jean Cormier to her party and then mildred MacCormack invited Kim Outhouse, who was unavailable for the photo, to her party. If you are interested, drop off a donation to either St Mary’s Church in Souris or St Alexis Church in Rollo Bay.
