Six inbound Rotary Youth Exchange students in District 7930, hosted by the Rotary Clubs in Marblehead, Hamilton/Wenham, Rockport, Ipswich, North Andover, and Salem, NH, and one student from District 7910 hosted by Bedford had their orientation at Bretton Woods, NH, in September.
The students come from Germany, Belgium, Spain, Czech Republic, India, Chile and Brazil, and will spend a year in a US high school, living with host families. Former exchange students, called Rotex, helped to mentor and train the students on topics such as school, host families and learning how to live in the United States. The students also got to experience the Zipline and a trip up the Cog Railway to the top of Mt. Washington, with a special tour of the weather station.
