Sharing Cultures
PROJECT GETTYSBURG-LEÓN
It is with great pleasure that Project Gettysburg-León (PGL) welcomes you to the Nicaragua Night 2015. For
over 20 years, PGL has sponsored this chili dinner and auction as its major fundraising event. Nicaragua Night
2014 raised over $55,000 for PGL programs!
We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the following people and organizations
whose support has made Nicaragua Night 2015 possible:
Our Corporate Sponsor: Sun Coffee Roasters
PGL thanks Sun Coffee Roasters for its generous, corporate support of Nicaragua Night 2015. CEO Keith
Lemnios informed PGL that Sun Coffee is providing a substantial monetary contribution, plus profits from the
sale of its coffee in the Gettysburg College Bookstore, as well as all of the income from 50 bags of coffee on
sale at tonight’s event.
Through its collegiate program, Sun Coffee Roasters retails its organic, fair-trade blends to Gettysburg
College’s Dining Services. The company, headquartered in Plainville, Connecticut, in addition to distributing its
coffee throughout the country, is committed to bringing premium, sustainable fair trade coffee to colleges and
universities, particularly in the east. Sun Coffee Roasters works with campuses to support educational and
service programs, such as Fair Trade or Rainforest Days, and, at Gettysburg, the annual PGL Auction.
Lemnios describes Sun Coffee Roasters as “a socially conscious, earth friendly, and highly innovative U.S.
coffee roaster . . .” He adds, “Not only is Sun’s process good for the planet, it’s good for your palette. Our
methods yield the freshest, best-tasting sustainable fair trade coffee possible.”
PGL is happy that Nicaragua is the source of some of Sun Coffee Roasters coffee beans, and is extremely
grateful for the company’s support of Nicaragua Night and our ongoing partnership initiatives.
Auction Committee: Their many hours of soliciting donations, cataloging, making arrangements, publicizing
and coordinating the Auction are truly appreciated:

Technical and Dining Services Staff, the Center for Public Service team, Gettysburg College student volunteers,
and other dedicated folks who hold Nicaragua in their hearts.
Our Donors
To all of our donors who gave so generously of their time, talents, and goods, we thank you! This event would
of course be nothing without the many treasured items being auctioned off tonight. With your help, we hope
to raise $60,000 tonight!
As you are aware, PGL is a tax-exempt organization, so donations tonight are eligible to claim as a tax
deduction. Those who donated will receive an email with a tax receipt in the weeks following the auction
(another effort to reduce our carbon footprint). If you donated, but would rather have a tax receipt mailed to
you, please see Joyce Ettenger or Jeff Rioux with your request.
The Impact of Partnership
PGL is honored to multiply its impact through the committed partnership of organizations such as the Adams
County Arts Council, the Gettysburg Area School District And the Adams County Art Teachers, Gettysburg
College, the Adams County Young Grower Alliance, Casa de la Cultura, and, in León Taller Artistico Xuchialt,
the community of Talolinga, the community of Monte Horeb, Nuevas Esperanzas, and Las Tias. Through these
partnerships, we all build a global community!
Casa de la Cultura
Casa de la Cultura began in 2011 as a local initiative of Project Gettysburg León. Sharing the mission of
fostering friendship, education and cultural exchange, Casa de la Cultura promotes the rights of immigrants in
Adams County and creates a space for the community to explore the arts and healthy living while emphasizing
Latino culture and its realities. Initiatives include support for youth applicants of Deferred Action, English as a
Second Language instruction in Gettysburg and Biglerville, swimming clinics, immigration reform activism, and
a soccer league as well as partnerships with Painted Turtle Farm and Healthy Options for healthy living and
family education activities.
NICARAGUA NIGHT 2015 3
We welcome participants, volunteers, and observers to develop and support initiatives. Together we can
improve our lives and human rights locally and in Nicaragua. Please visit the photographs displayed in the
dining area. They are from Retratos: La Otra Miranda/Portraits: From the Outside Looking In, an exhibit that
reveals the importance of faith, family and the basic humanity that binds us all together – regardless of
language culture or politics. The photographs are taken by Jorge Perez-Rico, facilitator of Casa de la Cultura.

NICARAGUA NIGHT 2015 7
PGL ENDOWMENT FUND
A generous benefactor has left Project Gettysburg-León a large bequest in his will. This bequest has allowed
PGL to establish an Endowment Fund through the good graces of the Adams County Community Foundation.
Once the money in this Endowment Fund reaches $25,000 (we are still several thousand dollars short), PGL
will begin receiving an annual income that will continue forever. What a wonderful way to guarantee support
for our programs in Nicaragua! Anyone willing to support the long-term future of PGL’s work could do no
better than to contribute to the Project Gettysburg-León Endowment Fund through the Adams County
Community Foundation.
To that end, Marlon Moreno has donated a painting to be auctioned off tonight, the proceeds of which will be
donated entirely to the Endowment Fund.
Inspired by children’s art lessons in León, through PGL and Nils Anderson, Marlon went on to become a
founding member of Taller Artistico Xuchialt. Nestled in the indigenous barrio of Sutiava in León, Xuchialt now
instructs over 120 students annually in the arts of Nicaragua. Marlon was director of Xuchialt for four years,
also serving as an instructor, and has been an artist in residence in high schools and elementary schools in the
Adams County area. Marlon’s intense interest in art and art education continues to grow. His unique, graphic
style of painting is inspired by the indigenous art of his culture.
By donating his art, Marlon is both paying it back, and paying it forward. Marlon is grateful for the
education and support of Taller Artistico Xuchialt and PGL. He is paying it forward by having the monies raised
by the sale of "Quetzalcoatl en el Cosmo” placed in the Endowment Fund to help future PGL programs.
Quetzalcoatl en el Cosmo
Marlon’s Artist Statement:
This painting is the work of Nicaraguan artist, Marlon Moreno. Its size is 13” X 18”, acrylic on canvas.
The painting expresses the cosmic world of a mystical Aztec god. As we know the history, the natives thought
the Spaniards were gods, even their god Quetzalcoatl. They saw the armor and the fire in the hands of the
conquerors. The natives submitted and were conquered in this confusion.
This painting is composed with its main form, the feathered serpent Quetzalcoatl. Every space within the
mystical god is represented with shapes and symbols that connect to the serpent’s history. There is a jaguar
sleeping. It is another god from the time. There is also a hand and bones that represent the death of the
people, murdered at the hands of the conquerors.
The yellow and green background represents the cosmos that links with the surrounding texture of the sky.
NICARAGUA NIGHT 2015 8
Quetzalcoatl en el Cosmo
Esta es una obra del artista nicaragüense Marlon Moreno. Una obra con las medidas de 13” X 18” en acrílico
sobre tela.
La obra expresa el mundo cósmico del mítico Dios Azteca. Lo que sabemos de la historia, los nativos
confundieron este Dios con los españoles. Al ver sus armaduras y el fuego en las manos de los
conquistadores, los nativos cedieron y fueron conquistados por esta confusión.
Esta pintura está compuesta con su forma principal, La Serpiente Emplumada o Quetzalcóatl. Cada espacio
dentro del mítico Dios está representado de figuras y símbolos que conectan a la serpiente con su historia.
Entre ellos podemos ver una pequeña representación de un jaguar durmiente, otro Dios de la época. Por otro
lado vemos una mano y sus huesos que representa la muerte de su pueblo a manos de los conquistadores.
El fondo amarillo y verde representa el cosmos que se entrelaza con la textura envolvente en el firmamento.

wall is all windows and the sun lights up the place on beautiful mornings. The windows look away from the
noise of the avenue on the front. We have oriental rugs but modern décor with all modern conveniences.
Two more can sleep downstairs in a couch bed, if you don’t mind being cozy. The building stands across
from the back of Grace Church (a beautiful Episcopal Cathedral), close to theaters, a music hall, the Strand
