Host families needed for Japanese students

Host families needed for Japanese students


The Oliver Tourism Association is hosting a 14-member delegation from the Town’s sister city Bandai, Japan.

From March 24 to 27, 11 Grade 9 students and two adults will visit and tour the South Okanagan.

The Association is looking for host families or billets for the participants, who are staying for three nights, ideally families with Junior High students that are interested in learning about another culture and making friends overseas.

A full itinerary of fun activities is lined up for March 25 and 26, and family members would be welcome to participate if they chose to.

If you are interested in hosting, please call Beth Garrish at 250-498-9867 or Ron Hovanes at 250-498-2600.
