Taiwan at Truman Seeks Families for Picnic, Cultural Exchange

This year’s Taiwan at Truman program is hosting 24 high school men from Zen Del High School in Taiwan. The program will be hosting a picnic and social event July 20 at Thousand Hills State Park, Shelter No. 3. Faculty, staff and friends of Truman, along with their families (especially children!) are invited to join the visiting students for a barbeque and various traditional picnic games. Festivities will begin at approximately 5 p.m. with food, and conclude by no later than 8 p.m., weather permitting.

The primary objective of the evening is to provide visiting students with an opportunity to interact with American families in lieu of a formal homestay setting. Individuals or families interested in participating should RSVP to Kevin Minch at kminch@truman.edu prior to July 18, with an approximate number attending.
