Dear Editors,

Summertime is Fresh Air time for thousands of New York City children who visit volunteer host families in 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada through The Fresh Air Fund’s Friendly Town Program. Thanks to over 25 Fresh Air families in the Bergen County area, New York City children had the chance to run barefoot in the grass and gaze at star-filled skies last summer.

This will be the seventh summer that our family has hosted a child through The Fresh Air Fund and we have invited Mesa back for a second visit with us. Visits to the pool, beach, mini-golf & Great Adventure are great fun, but she loves a picnic & sprinkler in the backyard just as much. We may even try to camp out this summer!

It’s easier than you think, and very rewarding for the whole family. Time & length of visits are flexible. Feel free to call me at 201-843-6870 with any questions, or to ask more about our experience. For more information on how you can sign up to host this summer, contact Cathy Cardew, Bergen County Representative, at 201-612-8337, The Fresh Air Fund at (800)367-0003 or visit www.freshair.org.
