Host Families Needed: Again this summer youth from the Chernobyl area will be coming to Ellensburg from July 2- Aug 6th. Three host families are still needed (the youth are in host's homes for about 4 weeks). This is a very gratifying experience!! Mrs. Cec Calhoun, 925-3888, can talk to you if you are interested. If you cannot be a host the whole time, she is also interested in hearing from you. Think about this!! Pray about this!!
