Western New York

Welcome to Your WNY Area Team

The Washington trip is in the books and from what we have heard, it was a sucess! We had 30 WNY and 7 Finger Lakes students on our excursion. For both Saturday and Sunday we had an additional group of D.C. kids to make for a full bus those days. The kids were great and families that took the kids for the 3 nights made some very good comments. A few D.C. families have already requested that their families be used for next years trip. As in the past, we always reciprocate, by offering WNY homes to any families that want to visit Niagara Falls and other items in the area.

This summer, Taylor (Capitol Area Team Volunteer and Host Dad), his student, and a former student from the Capitol team visited and stayed with us. He was key to coordinating the families for our trip and his efforts are greatly appreciated!

Next up.....the Halloween Party. Details on the Docs and Info tab.

As always, thank you for your support.

As always, if you have any suggestions or comments on the web site's content, let me know.
