Won't be home on Thanksgiving? RSVP to the FLIP + BCSC Thanksgiving Dinner ‘Tis the season to be THANKFUL!!! And when we think of giving thanks we think of Thanksgiving.

We, the fantastic and FLI brothers and sisters of the greater Stanford FLIP and the BCSC communities, invite you to consider having a day of community building, contemplation, and celebration this Thanksgiving.

Buena Vista’s 3rd Annual HOLIDAY POSADA CELEBRATION @ Buena Vista Mobile Home Park (transportation provided)

Posada Celebration on Saturday December 6th from 5-9 pm **NO NEED TO COME FOR THE WHOLE EVENT. We will shuttle you by reserved Marguerite.** This celebration is a religious festival and a political act. The community has asked us to come as a show of solidarity. At the party, members of the Buena Vista community will reenact the scene from the Bible in which Mary and Joseph seek shelter, asking “Is there room for me here?” This is a Christmas festival with food (and even the donkey that the Shrek character was modeled on, which comes from this area!), but it is also an act that asks Palo Alto “Is there room for us here?” as they struggle to keep their homes. All are invited to Buena Vista’s 3rd Annual HOLIDAY POSADA CELEBRATION In Buena Vista Mobile Home Park (RSVP for coordinated transportation) - Candlelight Procession: 5:30PM - Angel children lead Mary & Joseph in search of a place to stay. Shelter is found in a stable, and celebration ensues - Barron Park Donkeys, Pericles & Niner, 4:30 – 5:30, Los Robles entrance - Raices de Mexico folkloric dancers in their beautiful regional costumes - A traditional star-shaped piñata to delight children - Posada food for all: tamales, posole (soup), warm ponche (punch), and pan dulce - An opportunity to share a festive evening with Buena Vista neighbors Hosted by the Buena Vista Mobile Home Resident’s Association with the support of Friends of Buena Vista RSVP
