Saturday event to benefit People-to-People Student Ambassadors

Children in grades K-8 are in for a real treat Saturday, Oct. 25, at the Church of Christ building on Lewis Street in downtown Pagosa Springs.
The kids in kindergarten through fourth grade will have tons of fun jumping in a bouncy house, making Halloween crafts, playing games and enjoying a ghoulish lunch. Activities will start at 11 a.m. and last until 2 p.m.
The older kids, grades 5-8, will learn how to make chocolates, decorate cupcakes like the pros and much more. Their activities will begin at 3 p.m. and last to 6. and will also be held at the Church of Christ building. Dinner will be supplied.
The cost for either session is $12, with a discounted price of $10 for additional children in the same family. While space is limited, you can still reserve your spot by calling Terri Smith at 946-1745 or Linda Stuckwish at 759-5661.
All proceeds from this event will benefit the Pagosa Springs Junior High People-to-People Student Ambassadors, Amber Onello and Jennifer Smith.
People to People was founded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to promote world friendship and understanding through individual citizens.
Both Amber and Jenny were accepted into the prestigious People to People program after receiving a nomination from one of their teachers, submitting references and participating in a successful interview with the delegation leaders.
Students can earn academic credit while exploring the culture and heritage of the places they visit. Both girls will be traveling to France, Germany, England, Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands during the summer of 2009.
