Applications Open for Rotary Youth Exchange
Our Rotary District 6360 is seeking five students to be Rotary Youth Exchange students for the school year 2023-2024! These students will represent Rotary and the USA as they further their education, learn leadership, and personal skills in a foreign country. The rewards last a lifetime! If you know of a student who will be between the ages of 15 ½ and 18 ½ next school year and is interested in studying and living abroad (for free!), please share this opportunity with them. Interested students and their parents must complete the Club pre-application form by the end of October. See President Courtney for more information.
Editarian Report for September 29, 2022
In the first of our new monthly Thursday Social Gatherings, we all met at Lansing Brewing Company. We had a good turnout of members and guests. Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to have casual conversations. The only program was the presentation of September birthdays. As of the event, we had achieved 90% participation in giving to the foundation and had raised over $1,700!
If you missed the event, I encourage you to mark your calendar for the next one.
