WELSH LEAGUE OF ARIZONA
SEPTEMBER 2015 NEWS
TWO IMPORTANT THINGS
Because of the Labor Day weekend in September our next meeting will be October
News of our “Big Project”
Graham Tubbs has prepared an overview of an exciting project that we have discussed at
Request for financial support for Student Exchanges between Wales and Arizona
We have been investigating the prospects for the Welsh League, to become involved, as a
mission, with University Student Exchanges. In this process we discovered that the schools
of Engineering at Cardiff University and NAU (Flagstaff) have established a student
exchange program that will start in 2016. NAU Students will go to Cardiff for the Spring
semester and Cardiff students will attend NAU during the Fall Semester.
What we envision as approaches to help the students (both ways) are the following:-
1/ Financial aid probably in the form of scholarships
2/ Meeting with the students and helping them handle the cultural differences
Our plan to raise funds, is to put on a performance of a “Child’s Christmas in Wales” in
December 2016. This would allow us to have all of 2016 as preparation time. We will
continue to press on with this endeavor, but with this schedule we will not be able to provide
financial support to help the 2016 students.
Given this phasing problem, we would like to send out an appeal to the membership, to
make donations to the Welsh League that will be used to assist the students in 2016. This
is a great opportunity to share our love for Wales with students going to study there and
make Welsh students “feel at home” when they stay in Arizona. We want these students to
create memories for a lifetime and to become more globally aware in a World that is
becoming more interdependent every year.
We already have several pledges to start the fundraising. If you would like to contribute you
can send checks (please write “Scholarship” in the memo line), bring checks to a meeting or
use PayPal on our web site. Remember this is tax deductible because we are a non-profit.
