Host a sister city guest


   The Madras Sister City group will be hosting four students and two adults from the sister city of Tomi-City, Japan, from March 7 through 13.
   This is the third year the group has hosted sister city visitors.
   Volunteers are being sought to host the visitors, who prefer home stays where they can improve their English skills and experience American culture.
   Hosts will be asked to provide housing, meals and transportation for one of the guests for one week. The Madras Sister City group will provide daytime activities for the adults, while the students are attending school locally. Weekend entertainment will also be provided by Madras Sister City group for those who prefer it.
   Anyone interested in hosting a member should contact Floyd Courtain by Feb. 8, at 475-2783, or mail him at 33 S.W. Cascade Lane, Madras, OR 97741. If you prefer a boy or girl student, indicate that to Courtain.
