A huge thank you to another wonder community organization the Raue Center for their email blast today promoting MCYSA and the home stay program.

HELP RAUE CENTER SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITY
AND HELP THE MCYSA

At Raue Center, we take great pride in finding chances to partner with our community and our community’s kids. Because of this, we jumped at the chance to help our friends at the MCYSA.

For the last 25 years, the MCYSA (McHenry County Youth Sports Association) has held an international youth baseball tournament right here in our backyard. It's a great event that attracts kids from around the world, and it takes blood, sweat, and tears to make it run smoothly. But there is one thing they can’t get enough of. FAMILIES.

The MCYSA is looking for host families to give these kids a place to stay while they take part in the tournament. If you’re interested in learning how you can learn more about new cultures, help out a great organization, and do some good for kids in our community (and beyond!) please email John Streit at john2@keystonedisplay.com or Ted Groat at taft1969@aol.com to get more details.
