The Greene family of New Palestine played host to an exchange student from Italy, Elisa Franzosi (holding flag). "I kind of was a little hesitant thinking who would want to come to our little town..." said Trice Greene (back row, in black sweater) said. "By the time they leave, everyone around town knows them, and they%u2019re a real part of things, and that%u2019s great." (Photo provided)

NEW PALESTINE — There’s no question Dan and Trice Greene have a full and busy life. In addition to Dan being a firefighter for the Indianapolis Fire Department and Trice working as a middle school teacher in Washington Township, the couple are raising five children ranging from 4 to 13 years old.
Still, during the past three years, they’ve somehow found the time, space and patience to open their home to several foreign exchange students.
