Fryeburg Fair and Hosting Chinese Guest a wonderful experience

October 9, 2012

I want to thank all the families that welcomed our visitors from China into their homes and lives. From speaking with the visiting teachers, they appreciated your efforts and attention to their students. This is a special relationship that helps make the Gould experience rewarding.

How these two cultures relate and connect was evident last Friday night at the Fair. There were groups of students exploring the various food booths, rides, and games that included a mix of Chinese and American students. These groups morphed with other groups, separated and then reformed as the students felt comfortable with their surroundings.

I was very impressed with how the Gould students embraced the opportunity to be a good host and balanced our visitors’ needs to be together as well. The whole evening was wonderful and capped off by fireworks.
