Outbound Exchange Students Address Rotary

July 17, 2012
By: Stephen Kent

Tanner Norton, Nadieska Vasquez, Amanda Haag
Nadi Vasquez, last week's speaker, visited the club again on her last day in the US. She was scheduled to return to Peru the next day. She came to the front for a moment to once again thank the club and her host families for her stay over the last school year.

For the program, our two outbound exchange students presented their required talks and slide shows about their home country. Presenting the talks to local clubs allows the students to refine them and practice prior to going abroad and presenting to clubs in the country they visit.

Tanner Norton, the first speaker, will be going to Paraguay next year. Applicants list several choices of countries they'd like to go to. Tanner listed a number of Spanish speaking countries and frankly, Paraguay was not his first choice. But once selected he researched the country and looks forward to this experience.

Amanda Haag will be going to Northern Germany. In this case it was her first choice. Her talk and slide show highlighted the State of Michigan and the major cities and activities. Her first slide showed the traditional left hand for the UP and right hand for the Lower. She marked the major locations on each.

Both students talked about family and friends, activities, school and their plans. The club offered suggestions which will the students can later incorporate into their talks.


Jerome, Kim, and Mike
Jerome Yantz, Chair of the District Foundation's Major Gifts Program, presented a crystal award and special Rotary Pins to Kim and Mike Prime, who have chosen to include the Rotary Foundation in their Estate Plans. This makes them eligible for the Bequest Society Membership. Rotary at large and the members of the Bay City Club contratulate and thank Kim and Mike for their bequest.

President Kim kept to her word by showing off the water jugs and reminding club members how the contest works. Summarizing the rules:



Tim Holsworth reminded members about the Golf Tournament coming up on September 17. Title Sponsors are Covenant Health Care, and Wildfire Credit Union, which is providing the flat screen TV as a special prize. If you have questions LINK to the Golf page on the club web site.

The district is looking for a Rotarian to act as Team Leader for the Group Study Exchange (GSE)team that will go to South Korea March 29 to April 30, 2013. This is a great opportunity. If you're available and interested, please contact Kim.

July through December dues are now due. If you don't have your invoice, please see Secretary Steve Kent.
