EXCHANGE STUDENT NEWS
AN UPDATE ON THE ADVENTURES OF OUR EXCHANGE STUDENT ABBEY McGILL
EXCHANGE STUDENT Filippa Jeppsson Wall
20 Guests in all came to hear Filippas presentation plus many club members which filled the meeting room to overflowing. Our youngest guest was Addison who is just 5. Filippa gave the group an outline of who she is, where she comes from and her family. After the presentation all the guests joined us for dinner in the bistro. It was a good night that also demonstrated how we can deal with larger numbers at the Hotel.
Thank you to the host families that have supported the Youth Exchange program.
OCTOBER is Vocational Service month. It is now realised that “Vocational Service” is one of the many reasons for Rotary’s success. Yet, this second avenue of service in Rotary is often neglected. If we want our club to grow, we must keep vocational service in the forefront — in our planning and to take action. Ideas alone are useless unless put in action. Do what is right and put “Service Above The most important contribution that we can make to the social and material progress of a country is in performing our basic activities as efficiently as possible. In addition, we need to recognise and take a constructive interest in societal matters which may not be directly related to our business. We must endeavour to take advantage of the opportunities available to be involved in community educational and youth programmes.
