Host a Fresh Air child for a week this summer: I am a local volunteer for Fresh Air, recruiting host families in Yarmouth, North Yarmouth, Cumberland and Gray. We have additional volunteers to our north and south, representing all towns I'm sure your families are from. One of Merriconeag's families is already hosting a child from NYC this summer. New host families agree to host a child for one week. They may choose from the following weeks: July 9-16, August 11-18, or August 14-21. They may also indicate gender and age preference from the following categories: 7-8, 9-10, 11-12. The application includes a family interview and home walk-through, plus reference and background checks. For more information, visit www.freshair.org. If a group of Merriconeag families would like to get together for an informational evening, we would be happy to bring volunteers and current host families for a group Q&A/meet and greet. We think Merriconeag families have a lot in common with what we want to offer our city kids in terms of focus on play & immersion in nature. Additionally, the focus and dedication your families show to education will no doubt enhance the experience for any child. Bethany Smart, firstname.lastname@example.org, 207-712-1640 (02/11)
