SCRAMBLED EGG 5K. It's a 5k with an egg hunt built in! Join us March 30 at 8:30am at City Hall for our new race, the Scrambled Egg 5K! Participants will find different colored eggs scattered all over the course and each color will either help or hurt your time. We do not reveal what each color means until after the race! If you think you are fast, run straight through without picking up any eggs. Otherwise, try your luck at getting the best time by collecting up to 10 eggs! $30 pre-registration fee includes chip timing and tech fabric shirt.
HOST FAMILIES NEEDED TO WELCOME 34 INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS. Education First Educational Homestay Programs (EHP) is now accepting caring volunteer host families who are ready to welcome students into their home for a few weeks this summer. From July 16-August 5th host families on the Eastside will welcome 34 EHP students. EHP students will attend language and culture classes and enjoy planned activities during weekdays. Weekends will be free for host families to enjoy discounted activities with their students while building long lasting cross-cultural bonds. Families also earn travel rewards and discounts through this program. Children of host families can earn community service credit and 24-hour support from EHP staff is available. Families able to provide a room (shared room is fine), an extra plate at the table, and - most importantly - a stable caring environment, have what it takes to share their life with an eager student from abroad this summer. Contact Karene Busby at (425) 466-8538 for details.
