The Camden Hills Regional High School Italy Exchange Program will host a benefit night Tuesday, Nov. 29, from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Flatbread Company restaurant located at 399 Commercial St.

Flatbread will generously donate a portion of all proceeds from the pizzas sold that night to the Italy Exchange program. The night will include a raffle and Exchange Program merchandise. So if by the 29th, you have grown weary of Thanksgiving leftovers, then come out for an evening of fun and good food in support of the Italy Exchange.

The Camden Hills Regional High School Italy Exchange Program provides an opportunity for CHRHS students to take part in an educational, cultural and travel exchange with similarly aged students from the American International School in Genoa, Italy.

A group of 14 Italian students arrived in Camden in late October for a two-week long homestay. The trip included visits to Acadia National Park, Augusta’s Maine State Museum and Rockland’s downtown art district. They connected with host students and families during this time, taking part in family life and being treated to fun local activities as well.

After saying goodbye for six months, the Camden Hills students will visit their Italian friends in April. In these two weeks the Maine students will discover Italy while reconnecting with their host “siblings” through a homestay in historic Genoa. Camden Hills’ Italy Exchange Program has been very successful for several years now. It has created lifelong friendships and memories for all its participants.

The Exchange Program and Flatbread hope you will join us Nov. 29 to help support the international goodwill promoted by these bonds of friendship.
