Host families needed for visit

This summer, 24 Japanese boys from Shiba High School in Japan are coming to study English in the Okanagan.

Host families are needed from July 26 until Aug. 6.

The boys are 15 to 17 years old.

Organizers are looking for families who can open their hearts and their homes for these boys.  Host families will be given an honorarium.
