Mosaic Coalition sets gathering as it looks ahead Potluck Supper

Wednesday, May 09, 2007

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Potluck, anyone?

The Mosaic Coalition will be opening its doors to the Staten Island community for a Potluck Supper tomorrow from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Brighton Heights Reformed Church, St. George.

Along with the dinner, the coalition will be unveiling their restructuring, as well as discussing plans and initiatives.

Founded in 2002 by the New York Center for Interpersonal Development and Wagner College, the organization brings together community residents and organizations to foster increased respect and understanding among the many diverse groups that are part of the Island.

The 2006 U.S. Census revealed that the borough led the way in population gain statewide -- the second-largest county population gain between 2000 and 2006.

Much of the gain is being attributed to the influx of immigrants to the Island.

The dinner is part of monthly event shared by members as the group explores their cultural backgrounds, discusses local issues and shares perspectives on life. In addition, during the meeting, the group will unveil their restructuring including announcing various committees and discussing ideas and activities that are being planned. The event is open to all Islanders.

The church is located at 320 St. Mark's Place. For more information, phone Mike Baver at 718-815-4557 .
