Letter sent to Panhandle:

Dear my Host Families & all of the staff members,

How are you?
We arrived in Japan safely on August 22nd. Our students were all fine. It is cool in Japan, so I recovered smoothly from jet lag. Our stay in WA was so much fun and deeply impressed. We had a great time and many new experiences and made many new friends. With many thanks again for all you did. Please give my kind regards to your families and young staffs.

Please take care and have a great summer.
