Suffolk County Au Pairs
The Au Pair in America Au Pairs in Suffolk County enjoyed 2010 in the USA. They got together every month for meetings and fun activities. Au Pairs went to NYC often, ice skating in Bryant Park, seeing a Broadway Show, walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, and competing in a Scavenger Hunt with lots of other au pairs from Au Pair in America. Au Pairs enjoyed Long Island Beaches, a Long Island Ducks Baseball game, cluster meetings at Senior Community Counselor Cindy Garruba’s home, doing Global Awareness presentations in Suffolk County classrooms and libraries, decorating a holiday tree in Stony Brook Village, and decorating HELP Suffolk Homeless Shelter’s recreation room for the holidays.
Best of all, Au Pairs enjoyed the time they spent with their new friends and their host families. Happy New Year!! May we all learn from each other and have a peaceful and prosperous New Year!
The Long Island Au Pair in America Clusters went to the LI Ducks baseball game. Everyone had fun, the Community Counselors tried to explain the game to everyone, mostly the Au Pairs enjoyed cheering when the crowd cheered. The whole crowd helped when the singer stumbled through the National Anthem. It was a moving experience and fun to see how the whole crowd cheered the singer! The 7th inning stretch included a rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” with the whole singing along. It was a great American cultural experience for all the Au Pairs who come from all over the world to spend one or two years in the USA caring for children in a host family.
