IN MEMORY OF MILLIE BUEKEA

It is with great sadness that NWSE reports the passing of Millie Buekea, our long-time Area Coordinator in Portland, Oregon.

Millie became involved in student exchange more than twenty years ago and matched hundreds of students with host families. Her dedication and commitment was inspirational to all who knew her. She was very proud of her role in promoting intercultural and international understanding and respect. Indeed, her eyes would light up, and a big grin would spread over her face whenever people would ask her about the program she supported and her responsibilities. Those of us who had the privilege of working with her will miss her sorely - her enthusiasm, graciousness, and compassion.

Millie is survived by her husband, her sons Peter and Nick, her daughter Kiara, and grandson Brayden.

MARCH HOLIDAYS
 

Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17 in Ireland and many English-speaking countries around the world, including the United States. Originally a religious holiday, it is named after Saint Patrick, a fifth-century missionary who brought Christianity to Ireland, where he is considered the national patron saint. A symbol of the holiday is a "shamrock," a small plant with three heart-shaped leaves. In the U.S., the holiday has become a non-religious celebration of Irish culture, especially for the over 30 million Americans of Irish descent. Americans of all backgrounds usually celebrate it by wearing green and by participating in Irish cultural activities.
