It has been quite an exciting day here at campF.R.E.S.H. at Fontbonne University! We got to know one another, met the staff, and learned lot of new things about Africa! We cooked delicious Lemon Chicken with a cucumber yogurt salad. In the afternoon, we made recycled paper, Kente Cloths, and had an awesome African drum lesson from Mr. Isaac. Everyone at campF.R.E.S.H. is looking forward to the rest of the week.
