Celebrate Easter with an American Family - April 20th

The Little Falls Friends organization invites you to spend the Easter holiday—Sunday, April 20,2014 with an American family. This spring time holiday is celebrated in a variety of ways including: Religious observances, Easter egg coloring, Easter egg hunts, and the Easter bunny.

             You will attend a special Easter church service with your host family, and then go to the family’s home for Easter dinner and an afternoon visit.  This experience is open to all international students and it will be an opportunity to observe a religious practice while feeling no obligation to participate.  You will be returned to the campus between 5:00-6:00 p.m.

              Please let us know if you have a car and are willing to transport other students.
