After all the hard work (and fun) that was needed to establish the expectations of our fellowship, move in to our lovely house, and settle into our hectic semester schedules, we have finally arrived at this day: the day of our first open house, the day when we officially welcome the community into our home. We’re all excited! As the first Ruka residents in two years, one of our goals, this year, is to increase publicity and awareness about the Ruka so that we can maximize the impact of our house, as a place where ALL Rhodes students and members of the Memphis community feel welcome. The invites have been sent, the compost started, the house cleaned, the cookies and lemonade purchased. Now, we’re simply awaiting the guests. See one of our many invitations below. More pictures of the open house to come!
