Cannon Falls Rotary is excited to be welcoming our
new exchange student from Brazil at the end of August. We are still looking for additional host families for the coming school year. What makes Rotary Youth Exchange different?
1) Cub Support! We have a complete team of Rotarians dedicated to ensure both the student and host family have a great experience.
2) Our Rotary Club also gives each student a monthly spending allowance and pays for all school expenses included lunches and activity fees.
3) The student stays with 2-3 families during their visit for total time of 3-5 months.
Please consider opening you home to a exchange student and experience the rich culture exchange that results. Please contact Bonnie Lodermeier (651-380-0948) or Melissa Thompson(507-298-0326) or see the district website at http://northstaryouthexchange.com.
We were blessed this past year to have Eden Walson with us as a Rotary exchange student. She is an amazing person and was a wonderful ambassador for France. We wish her all luck in her future adventures in the world.
Our Exchange Student, Eden Walson participated in graduation at Cannon Falls High School. She will return home soon and we will miss her alot. She appears here with her host parents Judy and Vince Conway and Lorinda and Rick Johnson. Congratulations Eden!
