fausa_mod_logo  People who have lived outside their own country see the world through different eyes from those who haven’t had that opportunity. Our experiences are quite different, our friends more diverse, we (and our children) are likely to speak another language or two, and we are familiar with other cultures, through residency or travel.  In short, our perspective has changed. And so have we. Back in North America, we often feel just as we did when we moved to another culture: like a stranger.  “The purpose of the [FAUSA] Association shall be to facilitate the repatriation experience of its members and to help them maintain their international ties in order to bring about a better undestanding between the United States and other nations.” FAUSA members get the chance to network with other ‘repats’ at regular regional get- together. These fun-filled events take place in Boston, Cincinnati, Detroit, and Washington DC......just to name a few.

Speaking of fundraising, hosting a dinner or an 'apéro-dînatoire" is a fun way to help.You choose the theme, the date, the number of people you can host, and the amount you will charge for the event. The costs are your own contribution, but you can add a bit to the price to cover the cost of wine, or ask attendees to bring a bottle.
fawco_booksOne of AWG's fundraising efforts is the sale of used books.  Members donate books, and the club resells them for one euro each.  These funds are ear-marked for FAWCO, either as part of a club donation, or to help pay for the FAWCO rep to attend the annual conference.   The FAWCO books collection has recently been enhanced by the donation of more children's books.  We also have some books in French which might interest your friends or family.  All the FAWCO books are available for you to browse at your leisure, at a relatively accessible location, at Maggie's. Contact her if you would like an alphabetical list of the books.  There's still room on the shelves, so feel free to donate more books.
