A Tea Social – Today

Dear Friends,

As you know, this past week has been tough on many of us, due to lack of good access to connect with our loved ones.

Our kind friends, Kaivan, Nargess and Niki invited Iranians living in State College to their home for a tea social this afternoon, as a good company and tea always helps people feeling better.

This afternoon, 11/ 22/19 from 6:30 to 8 PM.

Their place is located at: 1042 Crabapple Dr, State College, PA

Hope to see you there!

Best,

ISA Officers.
