Youth exchange, both incoming and outgoing, have been priorities for our club. The exchange students we host each year change the lives of those students visiting our country and bring new ideas and cultures to our club. We can’t thank club member Judy Root enough for all the work she has put in to make our exchange program a success. Unfortunately, for the 2017-2018 school year we only get to learn from and enjoy one exchange student. And we still are in need of host families for that is from South Korea. Please contact us if you or someone you know would like to host this student for part of the school year. You will not regret it.
 
Now for the Foundation giving update. As of April 30, 46% of our members have given to the Rotary Foundation. Remember, this is the 100th anniversary of the RI Foundation and time is running out for you to donate this club year which ends June 30.
 
Rotary Serving Humanity,
Kathryn Cheek, President 2016-17
