MFIS hosted over 300 new international students at our annual picnic on September 1, 2018 at Brittingham Park. As if on cue, the sun came out and once again, we escaped the rain. Our 58 volunteers were eager to interact and welcome students. We enjoyed typical American picnic food from Stoddard’s Market followed with cupcakes from Metro Market. Global flags topped the cupcakes and we laughed watching students excitedly looking for their country’s flag. The fun continued as students and volunteers sang along with the Badger Band and danced the polka. One of the highlights of the picnic is students playing sports and games. Our volunteers taught students how to throw a Frisbee, play football, and learn outdoor games. Tired and thirsty the students just could not get enough and stayed long after our event ended. Thanks to all the MFIS volunteers for another great Welcome Picnic.
