International House, Davis, has several upcoming events designed to educate, amuse and celebrate.

Saturday is “An Evening for Haiti” from 6 to 9 p.m., feauring keynote speaker Jowel Laguerre, president of Solano Community College.

“Students at UC Davis formed a group called Ann Prepare Lavni to help build a library in a small town in Haiti,” said Elisabeth Sherwin, executive director of I-House. “This free evening will introduce you to Haitian culture and some of its very determined young people who want to make a difference.”

Then, on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 2 p.m., former I-House volunteer Jennifer Hsieh will tell a poster story called “The Mouse’s Wedding,” retold by Seishi Horio, illustrated by Masao Kubo and translated by Donna Tamaki. Children’s international storytelling programs take place one Sunday a month in the Community Room from 2 to 3 p.m. and are free to members. Others are asked to pay $2 per child or $5 for a family.

Finally, the traditional I-House Thanksgiving will take place on Saturday, Nov. 17. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and a buffet dinner with roast turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, and pumpkin pies will be served at 6 p.m.

I-House board members supply the turkeys, Ludy’s Main Street BBQ in Woodland will provide the mashed potatoes and parishioners at St. James Catholic Church bake the pies, Sherwin said.

Tickets are $15, available at I-House, 10 College Park, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Community members and international students are welcome.

”This is one of the best events of the year,” Sherwin added. “It gives newcomers and visitors a chance to celebrate this American holiday in a traditional way.”

For more information, call I-House at 530-753-5007.
