Work & Travel Participants Celebrate Easter

CHI Work and Travel students located in Williamsburg, VA got to experience first-hand how many Americans’ celebrate the secular side of Easter at the Pineapple Inn and Housing Center Easter party on March 27th.

The Pineapple Inn is home for fourteen CHI sponsored Thai students working at four area McDonald’s this spring. The Easter party was just one of the many cultural experiences the Pineapple Inn manager, Ms. Amy Shinske, makes available to international students throughout the year.

Jill Davis, a Program Coordinator working for Ms. Teresa Ottofaro-Devries attended and provided treats and food for the buffet, and answered questions about how these Easter traditions had come about.  (Everyone wanted to know why a rabbit brought eggs!)

It was evident the Easter Bunny had stopped (hopped?) by as students returned from their Easter Egg Hunt loaded down with colorful plastic eggs containing sweets and gift cards.

Next up; coloring 6 dozen hard-boiled Easter eggs.

While most of the eggs were destined for the Easter baskets of local children in need Jill showed students how to make deviled eggs with those eggs that did not pass the basket worthy test.

Ms. Kornnika Sangampai, a Pharmaceutical Sciences major at Prince of Songkhla University Thailand, was the only student daring enough to sample the deviled eggs.  Judging by her expression this was one traditional dish Kornnika would not be making on her own.

The Easter party was a great success and gave us all an opportunity to talk and relax together.
