Dear friends and families,
We are returning to the United States on January 28 after a wonderful six month sabbatical in Paris. We are planning on plunging back into our old life, literally, by joingin Champlain Elementary's Penguin Plunge Team and jumping into Lake Champlain on February 4! This year, the entire family is going to take the plunge, along with over 30 students, 6 teachers, and 8 parents from our school. The Penguin Plunge is a fund-raiser for the Vermont Special Olympics. We are collecting donations to sponsor us to jump into Lake Champlain on February 4.
We are hoping for a donation from you. Our suggested donation is $25.00, but anything helps! Our family has a web-site so you can donate on-line or you can send us a check too. Checks should be made out to Vermont Special Olympics. Checks can be sent to our home address:
66 Hoover Street
Thank you for your support and consideration. Your donation will go to a great cause. And please keep our frozen bodies in mind on February 4! We look forward to seeing you when we get home!
Jacques, Leslyn, Isidora, and Jean-Pierre
