In memory of Mrs. Adipah

A wonderful lady who some of our visitors met. We're not sure how old she was,but if not 100,very close. She'll be missed and remembered fondly. As a Krobo,beads were very important to her, as you can see in these photos.

We did it. We had a fantastic fundraiser. Raised money for the Aba House kids and danced the night away. Lots of donated food, vendors with a variety of interesting things for sale, a silent auction, an African headwrap demonstration, a wonderful young reggae singer and a good time was had by all.
Let's see what we come up with next!

The latest dance craze...everyone was doing it. Abayaa,the drummer in the middle, brought his group to Aba House. One of the wonderful things about Africa is that everyone's invited to age discrimination. Erica (in orange shirt ) was so good that Abayaa invited her to join his group. We'll have to wait awhile for that. She's 8 years old and, somehow, I can't see her parents letting her go to Accra for rehearsals.
