Man, I wish they had this when I went to school. Scope it out here:

A tentative schedule of what the kids and teachers from China will do in and around Merrimack is also available at:

There is a separate program, Peoplelink, which has 15 Chinese exchange students in Merrimack for 3 weeks, ending tomorrow. Two of them are staying with us.

That's great, Tom. Are you thinking about being a host family when the Chinese school comes to town this fall? It appears MHS is looking for both families and financial sponsors right now.

Not sure if we will be ready to be hosts again so soon, but I am very interested in the program. I am a frequent visitor to China, and I have been to Tianjin province and Tanggu many times. My company opened a factory in Tanggu, which I visit several times per year.
