KALAMAZOO -- Host families for professionals visiting the Kalamazoo area are being sought by a non-profit international organization with University ties.
Colleagues International is arranging for three or more groups to visit the area in May, June and October. The agency works with WMU and the U.S. government to coordinate the visits, which typically last two days to two weeks.
Volunteers also are needed to help with driving and to escort visitors on cultural trips. Call Joyce Harnden at 616 341-9494 for more information.
