Still Seeking Host Families

I hope you are all having a good summer.

We have a group coming to Bath from our Sister City, Tsugaru (Aomori) from August 7-14.  I am currently looking for Host Families for the 18 students (14 girls and 4 boys) and 6 adults.  I need your help!  I’m still looking for Host Families for most of this group!  Perhaps you know of someone that might be interested in hosting a student?  Could you pass my contact info (email) on to them and have them get in touch with me?

Here’s more info:

We have activities scheduled for the group weekdays, and the weekends are with the host families.  Our meeting point each day is the Bath YMCA.  Host families are simply required to provide the Tsugaru guest with their own bed (they can share a room), and to treat them as part of their family!

Please get back to me if you or someone you know might be interested!

I leave July 24 with the group from Bath to Japan, so I will not be available by phone, but will be checking my email daily.  Please respond by email at

Thank you so much for your time!
