Summer Home Stay

Dear CAFAM members,

A friend of the Connellys, Zhang Yi Lei, is coming back to Maine this summer with her daughter (second grader, Ruby) for a month so that Ruby can attend day camp at Bowdoin again, and she is looking for a home stay in the Brunswick area.

The Connelly’s house won’t do because it has cats, and Zhang can’t manage cats or dogs. Zhang and Ruby both speak very good English, and Zhang will have access to a car for the duration. Ideally, she is hoping to find a home that includes children around Ruby’s age.

The relevant time period is early July to early August. Anyone potentially open to the idea please get in touch with Mike Connelly at
