Want to Make a Difference in a Young Person’s Life? Host an international student in your home

Volunteer families, with or without children, are needed to host international teens from more than 12 different countries for the 2010/2011 school year. They are in need of caring families to provide beds and meals, as well as friendship, understanding and a genuine desire to share the American way of life with a young person from overseas.

The students speak English, are covered by medical insurance and have spending money for their personal expenses! The students are between the ages of 15 and 18 and will attend the high school closest to their host family’s home. Families are able to review student applications and select the student they feel will best match their family. If you are interested and would like more information, please contact Debbie Swingle at 903-316-9612 or visit flag-intl.org.


Tie a Blue Ribbon in honor of Child Abuse Awareness Month in April

The entire month of April is Child Abuse Awareness Month, and the folks at Lake Country CASA would like for all businesses and residents to tie blue ribbons on their businesses, cars, lapels or wherever to remind everyone to fight for the protection of our children! The Blue Ribbon Child Abuse Prevention Campaign was started in spring 1989 by a grandmother who received the devastating news that her beloved grandson had died of injuries inflicted by his parents. As an expression of her grief and outrage, Bonnie Finney tied a blue ribbon to the antenna of her van as a way to remember “the bruised and battered body of her grandson” and to alert her community to the tragedy of child abuse. Please show your support by “Tying a blue ribbon.”
