Talk Time and Thanksgiving Dinner in an American Home
Hey everyone, I have a couple of opportunities to tell you about. This Saturday, we are holding "Talk Time", an English conversation time at 11:00am. Everyone will be back home by 12:30. This is a chance to have discussion with people from the local Charlottesville community in a friendly setting where you can ask anything you want to. These volunteers are ready to hear about your experiences and answer any of your questions. We will host this discussion time in a local church.
Secondly, we are offering to match you with an American family to eat Thanksgiving dinner with them in their home.
Cider Pressing 2015!
Come to Patrick & CL's home to enjoy this popular American Tradition -- Saturday November 14, at 1:30pm.
With a whole trailer-full of apples, we will make Apple Cider using a method that is almost as old as America. We'll also craft hand-made pumpkin donuts together. They are delicious! Bring warm clothes because we will be doing much of this activity outside. Rides at 1:15PM from the AFC (Aquatic Fitness Center).
Bring an empty juice jug or water jug so you can take some cider home! Also bring warm clothes. We'll be outside strolling down to the creek, viewing the flock of chickens, and pressing apples, then coming inside to gather around the fire to warm up.
