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.
