Exchangee shares Spanish life
HELLO everyone, I hope you all enjoyed Easter and found it to be a relaxing time.
At last week’s meeting, we were happy to catch up with Rotary youth exchange student Ellie Richards.
Ellie addressed our meeting and told us about the 11 months she spent in Catalonia Vilafranca del Penedes, a small town about 20 minutes out of Barcelona.
Ellie mentioned she met some wonderful people including a new good friend, Maya, an American exchange student at the same school Ellie attended named Eugenia Dors.
Ellie said her time in Spain was an amazing experience, especially a tour around Europe, during which they visited 11 countries in 18 days.
It was a wonderful experience for you, Ellie and thank you for sharing your memories of your time there.
Ellie has returned to Chinchilla now and is back at Chinchilla State High School where she is a member of the Interact Club.
Did you know the month of April’s focus on the Rotary calendar is maternal and child health.
We have several projects worldwide which focus on this which include RAWCS (Rotary Australia World Community Service) in which Rotarians make a difference through their work with third world countries.
Another project as part of our focus is to support the Eastern Highlands in Papua New Guinea through the refurbishment and renovation of reproductive health centres.
We hope your coming week is full of wonderful things. Until then, please take care.
JOKE OF THE WEEK
Bill told his mate “I’ve really had it with my dog. He’ll chase anyone on a bicycle”.
“What are you going to do with him? Leave him at the dog’s home or give him away,” the mate asked.
“No,” Bill said. “Nothing that drastic. I think I’ll just confiscate his bike.”
