RE: 15 + INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS TO PLACE BEFORE THANKSGIVING

Plans are going well for the fifty-third annual visit of international college students over Thanksgiving. There are still 15 students (3 with families, 6 females, 6 males) from several countries that the Geneseo International Thanksgiving Fellowship Program needs to place in home stay families, with more on a waiting list if they can be placed. The students will arrive Wednesday, November 21 about 6:00 pm in Geneseo and leave Sunday, November 25 from Geneseo. Information packets are available for the host families.

There will be a Host Information Meeting, Monday, November 12 at 7:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church, 133 East North Street, Geneseo. All hosts are urged to attend to get acquainted and get information regarding the event.
