Linglestown Gazette: French kids headed to Linglestown, need housing

French kids headed to Linglestown, need housing

With their arrival date looming in the very near future, four French boys, all 18 or 19 years old, are now anxious to locate American families who will be their hosts for three weeks, beginning August 4. Host families are asked to provide room and board and a caring, hospitable atmosphere. Students all speak English, are fully insured, and have their own spending money. Hosts are reimbursed $80 per week to assist with expenses.

John-Sebastian, 18, likes swimming, computer games, and music. Matthieu, 19, works in his dad’s campground in the summers, plays the guitar, and loves all sorts of American music. Maxime, 18, likes to play soccer and tennis and watch films. Pierre, 19, studies math and science and wants to become an aeronautical engineer. He also likes tennis and volleyball.

LEC, a French student organization with American coordinators, has planned visits to the United States since 1972. Over the past three years, LEC students have visited families in Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lebanon, Perry, and York counties. Several have stayed right here in Linglestown.

For complete information on the LEC homestay program, contact Linglestown resident John Robinson, LEC Capital Region coordinator, at (717) 545-2979 or email. To see student profiles and photos, visit the LEC website.
