Cornwall church to feature "Magicians Without Borders"

CORNWALL The Cornwall Congregational Church (located at the intersection of Routes 30 and 74) will celebrate Pentecost, May 11 at 9:30a.m. in a special way this year, according to Sally Taylor of Lincoln. Tom Verner, the founder of Magicians Without Borders, and his wife, Janet Fredericks, an artist and a mime, will be part of the service. Verner and Fredericks are based in Lincoln. The couple has travelled extensively to orphanages in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and most recently the Middle East. Magicians Without Borders has brought laughter and hope to thousands of children. Through poetry, mime, and bewildering magic tricks they will share a message of caring and hope with churchgoers. The public is cordially invited to attend. Both children and adults will enjoy this presentation. On Thanksgiving Day 2007, the Hallmark Network broadcast a program about Magicians Without Borders. The cameo piece gave a good sense of the groups mission to bring hope to forgotten children in many of the most troubled places in the world. At the invitation of the United Nations, Magicians Without Borders created a magic show that teaches children and adults about HIV/AIDS. The group perform this educational and inspiring show in refuge camps around the world. For special arrangements or for more details, contact Taylor at 802-453-5953.
