A very special evening celebrating 25 years of sending kids overseas to immerse themselves in other cultures and for receiving kids from overseas to do the same here in the U.S.  Rona read letters from previous Exchange Students and introduced one former exchange student who went to Finland ten years ago.  Steve and Jill Albright, who chair the Outbound and Inbound programs, introduced this year's students.  Father Bob was the emcee for the evening once again.  The highlight of the evening, as always, was "Itchy Feet" time - when Rona reads letters from the Exchange Students who are currently overseas.  Rona Mann and Ed Skwirz, who headed up the Youth Exchange Program, have organized this event from the first year.  We celebrate the Rotary Exchange Program for the opportunity that opens up the world to these young people, sending them off to meet other young people from faraway places - "together we can all make this world just a little smaller."
