Brattleboro High School Exchange Students In Need of Hosts

Brattleboro High School is hoping to host 10 international exchange students this fall, who arrive in the area next month. Some are still in need of hosts who could welcome them to the area for even just the first couple of months of their stay. Could you open up your heart and home to one of these students, such as:

- Marie, a 17 year old girl from France, who loves cooking and arts. She hopes to spend time cooking French meals with, and learning from, her new host family.

- Pablo, a 16 year old boy from Spain. He loves sports, and hopes to learn baseball while here. He has a twin sister at home, and enjoys family time.

- And Sitong is a very hard working student from China. She is 16 years old, is active in her church youth group, tennis, choir, and volunteering.

On Exhibit at Brooks Library

"The Back of Brattleboro," (2005) by Terry Sylvester, is on extended display at Brooks Memorial Library as part of our renovation celebration! We hope you will come to see it in person!

"This piece was made specifically for a month long show at Brooks Memorial Library years ago. I used to live down by the railroad tracks and loved walking there, so I wanted to show a panoramic view of that beautiful part of town. I am so pleased to have it be a part of the library’s celebration!"~Terry Sylvester
