The Walsh County Fair Presents PARK RIVER, N.D. -- CCI Greenheart, a non- profit agency, is searching for volunteer host fami- lies in the Graflon/Park River and surrounding areas for exchange students arriving in late August. All of our students are 15-18 year old, they speak English, they have medical insurance and their own spend- ing money. Local Coordinator, Heather Peterson (TEL 218-843-1224) is organizing a group in the area, and hopes to find additional families who are inter- ested in hosting our students. Students attend the lo- cal high schools in the area, and arrive in late August -just in time for the start of school. They stay with local families through early June, and participate in extracurricular activities, family activities, and eat meals together with the family. Volunteer host families provide a room (which may be shared), meals, and a caring environment for their student. There is no typical family background, so families can be single parents, empty nesters, re- tired couples, families with young children/teens or no children, and even single individuals with special permission. The most important criteria is to have kind and loving families who are flexible and open- minded. Available students include: Gabriel (boy, Mexico) - 16 years old- enjoys drawing/painting, soccer, watching movies, going to the gym, bowling, crossfit, drama/set building, building models, outdoor activities, going to the beach. Don (girl, Vietnam) - 15 years old- enjoys read- ing, listening to music, travel, playing piano, camp- ing, swimming, drama/set building, gardening, con- servation activities, outdoor activities, attending theater, and baking. For more information on how to become a host family, please contact Heather Peterson (Hallock) at 218-843-1224 or complete an online inquiry at website: Just outside of Lan d0n, North Dakota Job Responsibilites: * Care tar and fccd animals * Maintain Clavironmcnt * l:ollm~ star t~(, ,~olliH:,; h qnI~(li~ t larcltb-h, Satt~rda~ Fvt,ning 'qtq~l~orri~ kot'-, and Raffle~Sckets for the cash raffle.
