"It was kind of my idea," Laura Rogers ex- plained. "I always said once the kids are old enough, self-sufficient, we were going to move somewhere quiet. We stumbled on Shelton and fell in love with it and we're here to stay." At the end of their summer trip, the family landed back in Los An- geles, only to come back to Shelton a month later to look for property. They moved in September. "It's beautiful and re- minds me of Wales," the mother said. "It even smells like Wales. You can smell the lumber. It's just so clean." Sam will follow in his father's footsteps, starting with his cook- ing style, an American- French fusion.

Concert: 'These kids need h elp' continued from page A-19 "For this location, that's pretty much where all the kids go to school," he said. Each student is asked to pay a small tuition, but many can't afford to pay, he said. Even if all of them paid, the tuition could not support the school's cost. "I was one of them," Sylvain said. As a young child, Syl- vain and his family lived in Port Au Prince, Haiti's capital city. Later, they moved to the nearby vil- lage of Fondfred. At the time, the only school in the area charged $1 a year in tuition, which his family could not afford. Sylvain missed two years of school. "Everyone wanted me to go to school. It was pretty sad," he said. Then an anonymous donor in the United States paid for Sylvain's education. He finished school, took some college classes and went to vo- cational school. He now works on HVAC systems. Sylvain still does not know who his benefactor was. "Thank you for what you did - you have no idea what you did for me," he said. Now Sylvain wants to give back. "These kids need help, the same way I (did). I can't help all of them," he said. Sylvain said his edu- cation made his life to- day possible.

"There was a big tran- sition," he said. "I had never been outside of Haiti." About four years ago, Sylvain said he began to work to raise money for the school in his Haiti hometown. In January, Sylvain and a group from the Shelton First Baptist Church traveled to Haiti and spent a week build- ing the school a new caf- eteria. Proceeds from the concert will go toward construction costs and furniture at the school, Sylvain said. He hopes the children at the school can learn from his example. "They can help the fu- ture generation," he said. All donations are ap- preciated, no matter the size, Sylvain said. "If it's a little, some- times we think it's not enough," he said. "Who- ever receives it, it can be big, life changing. If you skip one coffee every day for a month, it can make a big difference in a person's life. Little by little we can make a big change."
