Rotary District Youth Exchange Chair Robert Ford welcomed our four inbound Youth Exchange students for the 2022-23 high school year at our annual Welcome Picnic at Camp Rotary on Sunday, August 28th, where Rotary Youth Exchange program leaders, host families, and students got together to welcome the students to our district and to conduct an initial training session.
District Governor Alexander Falk delivered remarks on the importance of the Rotary Youth Exchange program for Peacebuilding in the World and presented all students with Rotary 2022-23 theme backpacks, as well as baseball caps and Rotary 4-way test coins - encouraging them to use the coins as conversation starters when other people ask them about Rotary. 
Our four inbound students this year are (left to right in the photo):
  • Sebas from Colombia hosted by the Swampscott Rotary Club
  • Rasmus from Finland hosted by the Ipswich-Rowley Rotary Club
  • Talia from Uganda hosted by the Marblehead Rotary Club
  • Ada from Switzerland hosted by the North Andover Rotary Club
We are grateful to those four Rotary Clubs for hosting our students and to all volunteers and host families in the Rotary Youth Exchange program in our district!
