Our district has received two invitations for Friendship Exchanges that we have accepted. As you may know, Friendship Exchange is an international exchange program for Rotary members and friends that allows participants to take turns hosting one another in their homes and clubs. https://www.rotary.org/en/our-programs/friendship-exchange . Our district has exchanged with many areas in the past including New Zealand, Brazil, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Australia, Vancouver Island and several areas in the USA. Lasting friendships and international understanding are only some of the benefits of an exchange.
The first exchange is with District 5110 (Oregon & Northern California) https://www.district5110.org/ or https://www.facebook.com/RotaryD5110/ who wish to visit us in August 2019 (8th to 24th tentative) and request that we return to visit them in September 2019 (10th to 26th tentative).
The second exchange is with District 9790 (Melbourne area in Australia). https://rotary9790.org.au  or https://www.facebook.com/rotary9790 . They would like to visit us late September or October 2019 with our return visit late February or March 2020 (That’s their Autumn J. How’s this February gone so far for you? ).
District 5110 has indicated that they would like to visit Newfoundland and St Pierre with perhaps Nova Scotia if time permits. We will be contacting these clubs to determine the level of participation desired.
District 9790 has not indicated a preference in which area that they would like to visit. We would like to hear from members and clubs to determine which ones would like to be the primary hosts for our visitors.
For more information or to express interest in either exchange, please contact PDG Tom McCaughey at dgtom7820@gmail.com or (709)682-7259.
