Donna Pedace, the Rotary Friendship Exchange District Chair, spoke today and she presented very interesting travel opportunities that we all should take advantage of. Â Three of these programs are available to anyone just by signing up for the International Fellowship online at the RI site. Â These other three travel fellowship programs are:
Donna manages a Rotary group exchange program where our District signs up to host visiting Rotarians and they in exchange will then host us. Â Groups can range in size from 6 – 12 people and Rotarians sign up to host a couple or a single traveler in their home for 2 – 4 nights and show them the local sites. Â Send Donna your email if you want to be included on her email d’list: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also reminded folks about their duties at the Oktoberfest and we could use more volunteers so if you are not signed up to do something, call Bret Wier at 575-613-2313 to find out where he still needs help. Golfers who participate in the Golf Outing have a chance to win a car if they get a hole in one on Hole Number 6 and will also get a $ 100 gift certificate just for showing up at any GM dealer for a test drive.
We sack for ALM this Sunday at 12:30 at the Baptist Church. Â ALM can use donations of canned vegetables as none were delivered from theÂ Food Depot. Â Peas, green beans and corn are the most popular. Â Donations can be brought to the Baptist Church or brought to a Rotary meeting.
All three Rio Grande Academy sessions will be offered in Santa Fe Sat. Oct. 24 and Sunday morning Oct. 25. Â The Inn at Santa Fe is available for only $ 69 per night. Details and Registration is online at the District web site.
