Local Fresh Air Fund organizers and prior year hosts from the Champlain Valley are holding an open house and information session on Monday, April 26, 7-8 p.m., at the Champlain Valley Christian Reformed Church, Church Street, Vergennes.
Local hosts and volunteers are looking ahead to this summer and will be available to talk to any prospective families who would like to hear first-hand what they can expect from this program. There are two trip options for families in the Addison County area wishing to host this summer: July 7-21 and Aug. 4-11. Additional trip dates are available from surrounding areas.
The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit organization, has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.7 million inner-city children since 1877. More than 65% of children are re-invited to stay with the same host family year after year.
For more information regarding the event on April 26 or about becoming a Fresh Air Host, call Marion Sullivan at 877-3028 or Sue Flynn at 759-2657 or go to the website www.freshair.org.
