International students welcomed to Langley

A special event on Wednesday, Oct. 16 welcomed international students and their home stay families.

Over 100 Langley international students and homestay parents were greeted and welcomed to Langley by Township Mayor Jack Froese and City Acting Mayor Ted Schaffer at Langley’s first annual International Students’ Day at the Muriel Arnason Library.

Students enjoyed getting their photos taken with the mayors as well as having fun with master of ceremonies Judi Vankevich. They learned simple memory tricks on how to remember how to say “Hi” in each other’s language, practicing firm and friendly handshakes with each other and the value of a friendly smile as they pass other students in the hall.

Many other special guests were on hand for the event as well.
