Paula Pigari from Brazil was hosted by the Rotary Club of Port Hope in 2004 -05.  Recently, Paula arrived in Canada with Daniel, her husband of two years.  They visited our club on November 9, 2015.  Paula is now a tax lawyer in Brazil.  Daniel is an architect, and he also owns a glass company that makes windows, mirrors and shower enclosures.
 
Paula and Daniel stayed with one of Paula's close friends from her time in Port Hope.  Steph and her husband live in Uxbridge.  When Paula and Daniel came to Port Hope, they stayed with Paula' first host family, Elizabeth Gordon and Wayne Pierce.  Their daughter, Mariko Vecchiola, went to France on Rotary Youth Exchange while Paula was here in Port Hope.
 
On Monday at Rotary, Paula and Daniel told the club about their lives in Brazil.  Daniel is also very familiar with Canada since he spent a year on exchange in Fort Frances, Ontario, close to the Manitoba border.  After catching up with club members, Paula and Daniel flew to New York on Tuesday for a few days before they will return to Brazil. 
 
It was great to see Paula again, and to meet her husband, Daniel!
