Students prepare for trip to Europe

Thursday, February 14, 2013 by ELSA KERSCHNER in Local News

Mediterranean Tradition is a trip to be taken as part of a People to People project.

Presently, there are 21 students from schools in the Lehigh Valley, Poconos, Saucon Valley, Palmerton, Northwestern and Lehighton.

They are attending monthly informational meetings at St. John's Lutheran Church, Slatington, to learn what it means to be an ambassador rather than a tourist before they leave July 10 for Spain, the only one of the three countries they will visit with home stays.

The other two countries are Italy and France. Their journey will last 19 days.
