AFS Intercultural Programs joined high school bands and other community organizations to march in the 15th annual Plymouth Parade on September 29th, 2012. Students representing 15 countries along with their host families carried flags from their home country and showed their pride of AFS and student exchange. After the parade, students and their host parents went ice skating at LifeTime fitness. This was a first for many AFS students from warm climates.
