WELCOME to Irymple, COLETTE
 
We have waited some time for this day, but we are finally joined by our Exchange Student, Colette Prost.
 
Colette was weary, but smiling as usual, last evening after a long, long journey from British Columbia, Canada.
 
Colette will be joining us for 12 months so there will be plenty of time for Members and Rotary Friends to meet and greet, then enjoy the company of our charming, smiling visitor.
 
 

Colette was welcomed at the Mildura Airport last evening by Counsellors John Fitzgibbon, Barbara Fitzgibbon and Rae Gibbons, Student Officer Paul Gibbons and Club Member Jason Ditchburn.
 
Also welcoming were Gary Klippel (D9520 Youth Exchange Committee/Group 1 Co-ordinator) and Francesca (Exchange with RC Mildura Deakin).
 
 
Colette later join her first Irymple Family, Host Mum and Dad Helen and Jason Gowers and Host Little Sisters, Maia, Sophia and Brother, Lincoln.
 
Colette is from Kelowna in British Columbia, Canada. She is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Kelowna http://portal.clubrunner.ca/565/
 
 
Club Members can read an introductory letter from Colette at Documents/en-us/70da8691-a169-4129-a451-6242886407af/1
