Thanksgiving Week Photos

During Thanksgiving break, Linda, a wonderful lady who volunteers to lead English Club every week, put on two sweet activities for several of the internationals who were still in town. (Many choose to travel to places like Florida, New York City, and Las Vegas during break.) Below are pictures from a trip they took to the state capital, Jefferson City. There were students from China, Hong Kong, Iran and Syria represented.

The day after Thanksgiving, Linda graciously opened her home to the students, giving them a delicious Thanksgiving dinner!

It was a wonderful experience for all involved! Thanks Linda and all those who put this on!
