Freshwater Community Hall Showing ‘One Immigrant’s Journey’ for Free on January 18th
This is a press release from the event organizers:
Please mark your calendars and join us on Friday, January 18th at 7 pm, for a free showing of the very special film “One Immigrant’s Journey” at the Freshwater Community Hall, 49 Grange Road, in Eureka (though it’s actually located in Freshwater and in the big red building you can’t miss adjacent to Garfield Elementary School).
This locally produced documentary by Amy Uyeki highlights the journey of our neighbor Marianne Pennekamp and her family escaping from Hitler’s Germany during the onset of WWII and coming to America. A very thoughtful, inspirational, and well-told story, this film mirrors many immigrant’s stories and is especially relevant today.
A panel discussion and questions with Marianne Pennekamp, Peter Pennekamp, Joy Hardin, and Amy Uyeki will follow the film. An optional community potluck is at 6 pm. Bring a dish to share if you like. The show begins at 7 pm. Please click on the picture for more details.
Everyone is welcome. We hope to see you and yours there.
