Mire Nishamora, our inbound exchange student from Japan, was at the August 28 Sunrise Club breakfast meeting and met many of the members. She will be attending Beekmantown School District. We look forward to her introductory presentation to the club.

Leticia Torres arrived from Brazil on August 22nd and is well settled with her first host family, Ann and Stephen Waite in the Peru School District. They were happy to attend last week's Noon Club meeting and meet many of the members.

I encourage committee chairs to contact me if they can include Mire and Leticia in any club events. The plan is to allow us to get to know them better through our many service projects.
Many Thanks to the members who have completed all the paperwork to become drivers/volunteers for the youth exchange program. A few of those who signed up still have missing documents and should look for details via email from me.

Andrea Clark is now co-chair of the program and is currently in charge of marketing and recruiting new host families and next year's exchange candidates. She will be arranging for some information events in the area, looking for venues etc. Please contact her with any ideas you may have.

New exchange student candidates for both the short term and long term programs (2018-2019) should apply no later than October 15.

We are in need of at least one more host family living in the Peru School district. Leticia should go to a new family in December and we would like to have this taken care of by the end of October. 

On Tuesday, September 4th, Ashtyn Moore will speak at the Sunrise Rotary about her experience in Denmark. Please think about attending to support her. The meeting is at the American Legion on the Quarry Road at 7:30 am.
