Great time with our Community @ the Onion Fair

This year to we had a fantastic time with the friends from our village helping at the traditional Onion Fair.

In the beginning of September we joined two evenings a week the team making hand-made tortellini pasta for the whole fair.

We had a lot of fun at it was great to see different generations working alongside together, from the 17yo girl to the 85yo lady and even a few men!!!
Local ladies loved to teach Jenny how to make this traditional pasta.

Then during the week Stefano went to help with the men in setting up the stand.
It was great to have good manly chats and to be teased alongside another guy for being the only two with a degree....

Then from Thursday to Monday evening we helped in clearing up, dividing rubbish and serving food to more than 6.000 people.

On Sunday as church-plant we had our fellowship lunch at the Fair meeting many local friends.

This Fair has always been an incredible opportunity to meet new people and to be an active part in the community.

Every time we had good conversations and the possibility to establish friendships.

This evening we'll have the meal for all the 150 volunteers who helped in this month.

We love these people and our village!
