Busy Week for Suffolk County Au Pair in America

Pizza & Sunset was the theme for our May Cluster meeting on Thursday evening.  We gathered at West Meadow Beach in Stony Brook.  Community Counselor, Cindy Garruba, brought lots of pizza and bottles of water. Everyone enjoyed visiting with each other and sharing time together.

The sunset was spectacular over the Long Island Sound.

Friday night was ESL Graduation from Suffolk County Community College for 2 of our au pairs were among the honored graduates.  There are 5 levels of ESL classes at SCCC.  Many au pairs never complete the highest level, but those who do have achieved a very high level of English.  Congratulations to Viviana and Julianna, both from Colombia!

On Memorial Day, we participated in the East End Arts Street Chalk Festival on Main Street in Riverhead!  Au Pair in America sponsored a square, the proceeds goes to the arts council.
