Foreign Students Spend Thanksgiving in Westport

More than 100 international students visited Westport today to share Thanksgiving dinner with 44 families. The event was sponsored by the local chapter of the United Nations Associates headed by AA Thant. Barbara Jay coordinated the event. Although the scene at the Westport train station appeared chaotic as the morning trains arrived, the visiting students were quickly whisked away to spend the day with their host familes. Students came from Asia, Europe, and South America and attend such area schools as Columbia University, New York University, City University of New York, and Rutgers. The event has been an annual happening since 1969. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Saul Haffner for
