Holiday Party, Friends, Food & Fun!!

On Sunday, December 15th the Suffolk County Cluster of Au Pair in America celebrated the holidays at their Community Counselor Cindy Garruba’s home.

We had an international potluck with au pairs preparing food from their countries.  It was fun sharing the traditions and food from all over the world!

We played some games and exchanged gifts.



Holiday Party for Suffolk Au Pair in America Au Pairs!

Sunday, December 16 was a rainy, windy day but the Au Pair in America Suffolk County au pairs were warm and happy at their International Potluck Holiday Party.  They gathered at Community Counselor, Cindy Garruba’s house for a feast!  Everyone brought a dish from their country to share!

Then we played holiday games and got to know everyone a little bit better by sharing holiday customs from our countries!

A silly Christmas story right left grab bag gift exchange was fun.  Everyone got a gift and Cindy gave each au pair a Santa hat and gift, too. 

We finished up with dessert.  Christmas carols played in the background, while laughs and conversation was lively.  Lots of fun for all!
