The News Got Out

Dear New Bay Times Weekly:

We want to thank Sandra Martin, M.L. Faunce and your staff for the articles you published [May 21-June 4] on our Agricultural Awareness Day in New Bay Times.

As a result of the publicity provided by your articles and other sources, over 500 people attended the event. The Ameripaca Alpaca Farm and the Deale Aquaculture Farm were the most popular sites, with over 150 people visiting each. Several others had over 50 people visiting.

Because both the people visiting the various sites and the farming operations participating in the Agricultural Awareness Day found it enjoyable and worthwhile, we plan to make it an annual event.

Seeking Chesapeake Homes for International Students

Dear New Bay Times~Weekly:

As August approaches, thousands of families across the United States are getting excited about welcoming a student from a foreign country into their homes. These families - whether they are single-parent families and with or without children - have decided to host an exchange student for both the opportunity to learn about a different culture without having to leave their home and the joy of having another family member to love and care for.

For the teenagers, being part of an American family and studying at an American high school is an experience they've been dreaming of for a long time.

Through the American Field Service, 2,500 teenagers are coming to the US from over 30 different countries for a year program. American Field Service celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1997; we are the most experienced student exchange organization and the one that offers the most support, with a network of about 5,000 volunteers all over the country. Our programs have an academic focus, and both students and host families are screened. Our Southeast Regional Service Center is located in Annapolis.

We are still accepting applications from families who want to host for the 1998-99 academic year. If you would like to become one of these families and open your home and hearts to an exchange student, call the Annapolis office at 800/876-2377.

Wanted: Another Chapter on Brown Family Fate

Dear New Bay Times Weekly:

After reading my first copy of your paper, Vol. VI No. 21 [May 28-June 3], I am really looking forward to your next issues and others to be printed. I enjoyed every article and I must say I was intrigued by one article in particular, "Letters from London Town" by James Gibb, for he has promised (so to speak) that he will tell me what happened to William Brown and family after Sheriff Rawlings evicted him with "strong hand and armed force."

This fan and reader must find out the whole story! Your paper is a pleasure to read.

-Shirley Lavish, Lusby


Editor's note: Your wish comes true this week. Read "Letters from London Town" each month in NBT.
