Dear Friends and Supporters,

From Saturday September 8, 2018 to Friday September 14, 2018, SWF will be hosting thirteen students and three professors from Kagoshima University. We are looking for host families for the group. This program is in its second year and we are looking forward to another fun and exciting hosting experience with this new group of college students.

The students are freshmen and sophomores (19-20 years old) with various majors, and they will be attending classes and activities at Sonoma State Monday through Thursday. Host families will need to drive the students to a central drop off spot in Sebastopol Monday through Thursday mornings. Pick up is in the late afternoon at the same location.Host families provide breakfast and dinner. In addition, they will be asked to prepare a bag lunch a couple of times

On Friday, we will hold a Sayonara dinner for host families and students where the students will give us a presentation. More to come on these plans. Students will leave for the airport after the party on Friday evening.

If you are interested in hosting one or two students, please contact Beth Lamb (707) 322-0744, blamb@jps.net or Meg Mizitani at (707) 484-0245, megmizutani@gmail.com.
