Host Families Needed
The Temecula Sister City Association is looking for families to host a group of middle school students visiting from our sister city of Daisen, Japan. Families will be able to learn more about the Japanese culture and show our visitors how the typical family in Temecula lives while supporting a sister city relationship that has been going for 20 years.
We are looking for families to host 7 students (13-14 years old) that will arrive on Monday, July 27 and depart on Tuesday, August 4. This year we have 3 boys and 4 girls that will be part of the exchange group. Each student needs to be placed with their own host family that can provide the student with their own bed and room during their stay in Temecula. Activities for both the exchange students and host families are planned for most days.
We hope that you will consider being part of this good will exchange with our Japanese sister city and serve as an ambassador for the City of Temecula. If you are interested in hosting or have additional questions email me at email@example.com (please be sure to put “Hosting a Student From Daisen” as the subject). Our goal is to have all students placed in a family by the end of March.
