Winchendon School students from the 2012 trip at the “nursing home”.
In a little over 24 hours 14 high school students from The Winchendon School in Winchendon, MA will be waking up to begin their journey to Les Cayes, Haiti with Forward in Health. Travel day will begin with the bus pulling out of The Winchendon School at 1:30 AM to Logan Airport. The group will have 4 chaperones including FIH co-founder and all everything Paula Mulqueen and FIH board member Debbie Orre. This will be the first large group to stay at the FIH guest house. Among the many activities planned, the students will be painting the check-in/check-out area the school color green and the school logo. Another sign that opening day is coming! They will also shop at the market, prepare the food, decorate the dining area, and serve Easter dinner to the 38 residents at a “nursing home”. It is not exactly what we think of as a nursing home. The visit and dinner prepared by the students is a highlight for the residents.
