July 2022 Ota Students to Salem Cancelled

We have learned that students from Ota will not be able to come visit the US this summer.  To our host families, we have appreciated your patience in holding vacation dates with optimism!  We will still hold the 30th Anniversary Celebration at the PEM on JULY 30, and hope to see many of you there.

We are moving forward in hopes our students can still travel to Ota in August.
