Mays Landing Rotary seeks host family

The Mays Landing Rotary Club is seeking a host family for an incoming exchange student from Taubate, Sao Paulo, Brazil, for the 2013-14 school year. The girl, Ana, was 16 in April, and will be a junior.

Host families must live within the area served by Oakcrest High School, which the student will attend. Families will be required to feed the student and provide her a personal place for sleep and study. There is no ideal family the group is looking for, and families with and without children as well as single- and dual-parent families are invited to apply. All applicants will be subject to in-home interviews and background checks.

To apply to be a host family, contact Roy Klein at 609-909-0955 or email roy@fscoi.com. The club, which meets most Tuesdays at 6:15 p.m. at Ye Olde Mill Street Pub in Mays Landing, is looking for new members.
