Our visitors from District 5110 in Oregon have returned home but with fabulous memories and rave reviews about their experience here in our district. They had been toured and hosted by Rotarians from Sackville, Halifax, Lunenburg, St Pierre, St John’s, Clarenville, Gander, Corner Brook and assisted in their travels by several others.
They have experienced our culture, our history, our food, had fun, saw lots of our country. They met lots of wonderful Rotarians, toured our projects and most especially appreciated our hospitality. Their comments include “the best exchange ever” and ‘we will have to try very hard to match this experience” “ Mooseburgers for dinner-really delicious”.
They are looking forward to hosting us next year. We are now accepting applications for the return exchange to Oregon in May 2020. Applications can be found in the Friendship Exchange section of our District webpage or contact RFE Chair Tom McCaughey at
As you are reading this the RFE team from District 9790 Australia is in their final week touring our district. They have been hosted by Rotarians in Truro, Charlottetown, and the Annapolis Valley so far - with trips through Luneburg and Halifax to go yet. More on them later.
We are currently in discussions with districts in Russia, South Africa, India and Manitoba for future exchanges. Stay tuned.
