Dear Families,

I am finalizing our 2012 t-shirt design, so we can have it to the printer in less than a month. I am trying to include all the hometowns of our Bulgarian children. Represented thus far on the shirt:

Shumen, Khardzali, Kaspichan, Malak Preslavets, Dobrich, Stara Zagora, Pleven, Varna, Targovishte, Sofia, and Ruse.

If you do not see your child's town on this list, please email me (viviane8 @ by April 17 (tax day) and let me know what to add. If you miss this deadline, your child's town will not be included on this year's t-shirt.

Thank you.
