Activity Cancelled

Sadly, we are unable to have our au pair meeting this month. Although we had scheduled to go on a ghostwalk on the 14th, too many conflicts have arisen for that weekend, and with the area director out of town and unavailable for the rest of the month, there is not enough time for us to get together! This is very unusual for us and I will greatly miss seeing everybody. As such, I expect everyone to already have our next activity on their calendar and hopefully there won't be any conflicts! We have International Host Family and Au Pair Day next month, so please make plans to attend!!

Newsletter: Aug. 2010

Welcome to August! The weather is still blazing hot, but it's time to start getting ready to go back to school. It's not too early to start thinking about your autumn, which tends to be a very busy time with activities, sports events, holidays, and even the run-up to Christmas. Before everything gets too hectic, plan one last fling this month and create a few more summer memories!

I have some very important information for you, so please take time to read everything! First of all, you should have received this month's newsletter, roster, and map via email. As ever, let me know if you did not receive the email or have any trouble with the files.

I will be out of town at the end of August. During that time I will be available by phone/email (barring any unforeseen issues, like, say, a faulty charger cable...). However, I have requested three days of vacation as we will be busy with wedding activities. Again, Melissa Bush has agreed to cover for me while I'm gone. Please don't hesitate to contact her if you need anything. Please see the email I sent for the specific dates.

Save the Date: this year's Host Family Day will be the weekend of September 25th and 26th. Everyone is invited! I have not yet finalized plans and would love to hear any input! Would Saturday or Sunday be better for you? Do you have any particular suggestions? For those who have been with AuPairCare for a while, what have been successful Host Family Days in the past? I will be scheduling a venue early this month, so please share any ideas you have! Also, please feel free to invite any friends who are interested in learning more about AuPairCare.

Just a reminder that my business number is now also my cell phone number. If you need to reach me on the phone, please call <number removed>. The old cell number has been deactivated. This number also now accepts text messages if that is your preferred method (though please note that I do not have unlimited messaging on my plan).
