Social is out for July. Instead, come kayaking

Friends, I cannot organize the Social this month, I am out of time with many other commitements.

However, I am urgently looking for a few people that own kayaks, have at least basic kayaking experience and would like to get up at 4 am on the comming Sunday...

As you may know, we will have the Ironman event in Delaware on that day and we are urgently looking for a few more volunteers to help with swimmers safety. This is a very memorable experience indeed. It is a serious commitement, we do not want any last minute cancellations etc. The event will start at 5 am and we are expected to be on the water until 9:30 or 10 am.

If you are interested, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.or call me (614 619 0114) imediatelly and I will tell you how to register.

YogaBear Club

 

 

if gb 4627 

YogaBear Club for ladies involves not only exercise sessions with elements of aerobic, yoga and dance but also an active social life. The meetings usually end with getting “a bite” to eat. Hence the name of the club. Usually, they take place every Thursday, 7 p.m. at Upper Arlington Library Lane Branch. During summer months that location is not available. We meet in parks, on farms or hiking trails, in private yards. We not only exercise then but also walk, run, ride bikes or pick fruit.
The sessions are FREE OF CHARGE. Please check with Marzena Myszkowska, tel. 614.596.3282 about the meeting.  

if pl 4725 

YogaBear Club to nie tylko zajęcia ruchowe dla pan z elementami aerobiku, yogi, tańca,... ale także ożywione życie towarzyskie, które na ogół kończy się Małym-CoNieCo. Stad nazwa ;-). Treningi zwykle odbywaja się w każdy czwartek o godz.19:00, w salce bibliotecznej Upper Arlington Library Lane Branch. W miesiacach letnich, z uwagi na brak sali, spotykamy sie w różnych punktach miasta: w parkach, na farmach, w prywatnich ogrodach, alejach spacerowych. Wtedy nie tylko cwiczymy, ale takze spacerujemy, biegamy, jeździmy na rowerach, zbieramy owoce.
ZAJĘCIA BEZPŁATNE. Informacje o spotkaniu uzyskasz u Marzeny Myszkowskiej, tel. 614.596.3282

Own a business? Host an intern from Poland for the summer.

Dear Supporters,

I recently met with representatives from Fulbright Poland and with the Polish American Freedom Fundation. There are opportunities to bring students from Poland for summer internships with scholarships provided by either of these organizations. These could be students from virtually any university in Poland. The internship must be related to their education. We would work together with these organizations to select the qualified student(s), your responsibility is to provide housing, stipend and a worthwile internship.

If you are interested please email or call me. If you do not own your own business, convince your boss to offer such internship placement and provide a life-changing experience to Polish youth.

Greg
