A sincere thank you to all who came to the event and enjoyed the Indian food and dancers! Thank you to all who donated either at the silent or live auctions, or who made a donation in lieu of their attendance, or an outright donation. Thank you to all the patrons and organizers for giving of their time and talents, especially Sharon Nolte, our lead organizer.
International Village Clinic appreciates you all!

The next opportunity to donate to IVC will be November 7 on the “Give to the MAX Day.” Please mark your calendars to donate to IVC. Ben Theisen, IVC board member, is leading this campaign. IVC needs and requests your participation in earnest. Thank you!'
Returning to India
I am leaving for India in the first week of November for my annual 6 month visit to the project. You will receive my next newsletter from Marufpur, India.

IVC has hired Dr. Sridhar Mishra, a new part time doctor. He has already started working at the clinic.
Abul's flight from New Delhi was delayed for hours due to fog. His driver had to wait for him at the Varanasi airport most of the day. Extreme fog in the winter is common.
