Au Pairs Spend the Day on the Historical Harpeth River
As one of their favorite outings from 2015, a group of au pairs from Nashville spent the day canoeing down and learning about the Harpeth River located in Davidson County, Tennessee. Au pairs from Brazil, Turkey, China, Thailand, France, Mexico and Colombia were able to spend the day taking in the natural beauty of one of Nashville's favorite recreational areas. This region is also well known historically as it was settled from 1000 – 1600 A.D. by a group of Native Americans known as Mississippians.
Area Director Lindsey Monger, who accompanied the au pairs on the trip, noted:
“On a day in which the weather was perfect, not too hot and not too cold, the trip had the au pairs begging to stay longer. They enjoyed a few rapids, snacking, and the natural beauty of one of Nashville's favorite recreational areas!”
In a region rich in historical significance, both from a Native American standpoint and the War of 1812, these au pairs had a wonderful time enjoying the sunshine while better understanding this area. It was a fantastic trip that many are already looking forward to participating in again come early spring!
