Salsa Pachanga Homecoming Event
Good Samaritan Community Services

October, 2015

Good Samaritan Community Services (GSCS) welcomes back those who have participated in GSCS programs to their 1st annual Salsa Pachanga, presented by Farm Bureau Bank, from 6-9 p.m. on October 24 at the Good Samaritan Center.

Catering will be provided by Panchitos Mexican Restaurant. Activities will include salsa tasting, salsa dancing and the sharing of  GSCS Alumni's stories and what life beyond the center has brought them. Salsa for the salsa tasting will be provided by Panchito's Mexican Restaurant, Paloma Blanca Mexican Cuisine, Los Barrios Mexican Restaurant, Jacala Mexican Restaurant, among others. Music will be provided by Eddie Aguilera. 
There will be a moment to reflect on and remember Gloria (Glo) Kehl, who passed away this summer. Many remember Glo for her strength and devotion to service over 33 years as a group worker, assistant director, executive director and president of GSCS.

"I find Good Sam Alumni everywhere, and it is just incredible to see the wonderful things they are doing and have done in their life beyond this special place." explains Jill Oettinger, CEO of Good Samaritan Community Services. "We want to use this time to reminisce and raise awareness on how we can continue to live out the parable of the Good Samaritan in our work just as Glo and many of our Alumni have done."

A suggested $25.00 donation will be requested at event registration, but otherwise admission is complimentary.  All GSCS Alumni and their families are encouraged to attend. For more information, contact Kathleen Dove at 210-424-2066 or
