In a few days, our outbound team representing Newfoundland, St Pierre and HRM will be beginning our exchange with D6990 in Florida and the Florida Keys.
Unfortunately, the Grand Bahama Island leg has been dropped primarily due to difficulties caused primarily by the hurricane last fall. Our contact has promised a full and entertaining visit throughout the rest of the district. The return team from D6990 will visit us in August.
Our return visit to D5020 Vancouver Island/ Washington state is scheduled to begin in Comox / Campbell River, BC on May 9th and end in Tacoma, WA. on May 24th. Unfortunately, some members of our selected team have had to drop out. We are now accepting applications from interested Rotarians. Contact PDG Tom McCaughey at dgtom7820@gmail.comor or (709)-682-7259
In the meantime, team leader PFG Duncan Conrad has plans well underway for our return visit to D1420 in Finland & Estonia. This exchange is in August.
We have request from D9700 in Australia to visit them in November this year with their return visit here in 2019. Another request that we are considering is from District 5110 in Oregon/Northern California to visit us in September / October and to return to visit them in May 2019. Requests for applictions from interested Rotarians will be issued shortly.
We have been requested to participate in possible future exchanges with several other countries including The Netherlands and South Africa.  We will keep you informed on our progress.
