First of all, thank you for your generous donation! With your help, we can send 10 Childhaven participants to the Up with People show; an experience of a lifetime. We will make sure to mention the Northwest New Mexico Arts Council in our show program as a ticket donor.

We will also join the mayor’s teen advisory council meeting on February 5th at 6 pm in the teen zone in the library.
We would love to do a presentation about Up with People (10-15 minutes) and use the screen for our powerpoint. We will also do some fun international trivia with the kids. It would be great if you could promote this event on your website! We’d love to have as many teens as possible come to the event.  We will also bring flyers about the show to the meeting, as well as posters for in the library.

If you have any contact details for people at the mom’s groups you were telling about, we’d love to get into contact with them to give them the opportunity to become host families!

Finally, it would be great if you could send the e-blast that I attached to this e-mail out to all contacts from the library, so that we can spread the word about Up with People’s visit and our search for host families among as many people as possible! Also, could you post the message below on the library’s social media?

Once again, thank you for all your support, and if you have any other questions or suggestions, feel free to contact me!

Warm Regards,

Up with People is returning to Farmington! With 110 International young people representing 20 different countries, this is sure to be an unforgettable week. They’ll be celebrating the organizations 50th anniversary by premiering their newest production “The Journey” at the Farmington Civic Center February 22nd. Their previous visit to Farmington was a great success, and now you can be part of it, too! You can host an international volunteer in your home next month! They’ll be visiting February 16th until the 23rd. Hosting is easy, you’ll just need to provide some meals, light transportation and a place to sleep! And each host family will receive two complementary tickets to the Up with People show in return! If you are interested in this experience call Jinte Veldman at (720) 460-7345 or by email at
